Fungal Endophytic Communities in Grapevines (Vitis vinifera L.) Respond to Crop Management
ABSTRACT We studied the distribution of fungal endophytes of grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) plants in a subalpine area of northern Italy, where viticulture is of high economic relevance. We adoptedExpand

Smelling a diseased host: grapevine moth responses to healthy and fungus-infected grapes
Herbivorous insects use information about volatile substances to select their host plants. The possibility that insects use these volatiles to assess the infection status of a host plant has rarelyExpand

Development of a High-Throughput Method for Quantification of Plasmopara viticola DNA in Grapevine Leaves by Means of Quantitative Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction.
ABSTRACT Plasmopara viticola is a strictly biotrophic oomycete that causes downy mildew, which is one of the most important grapevine diseases. Control of the disease is most often achieved byExpand
