Olive fruit fly Bactrocera oleae (Gmelin) (Diptera: Tephritidae) infestation levels were quantified in rainfed adult olive (Olea europaea L.) (Lamiales: Oleaceae) trees of seven cultivars originating from Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal and France to determine their relationships with fruit length, width, weight, oil and mineral element content and to(More)
The present study attempts to determine how some physiological and reproductive functions of olive tree (Olea europaea L., cv. Koroneiki) respond to enhanced UV-B radiation or heat. Enhanced UV-B radiation was applied to (1) three-year-old potted plants in an open nursery (corresponded to ca. 16% ozone depletion), and (2) in vitro cultured pollen samples(More)
Five organic Sloping and Mountainous Olive Plantation Production Systems (SMOPS) have been studied in four olive-producing areas in four European countries (Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal). Results indicate that these SMOPS provide ecological, economic and social benefits to the regions in which they are located, although most of these benefits are not(More)
Fertilizers have undoubtedly contributed to the significant increase in yields worldwide and therefore to the considerable improvement of quality of life of man and animals. Today, attention is focussed on the risks imposed by agricultural fertilizers. These effects include the dissolution and transport of excess quantities of fertilizer major- and(More)
In the present study, four Greek (Agiorgitiko, Asyrtiko, Roditis and Xinomavro) and one international (Soultanina) grapevine cultivars (Vitis vinifera L.) were screened for their resistance to Phaeomoniella chlamydospora. Artificial inoculation was carried out by drilling a hole into the trunk and injecting a concentrated conidial suspension into the(More)
Self-fertility is largely decreased and even prevented by various mechanisms because, broadly, it causes inbreeding depression, although some species have retained self-reproduction regimes. Species of plants that display the self-incompatible sporophytic type of self-incompatibility may rarely self-pollinate. It is only possible in the absence of foreign(More)
