Water management practices and climate in ancient agriculture: inferences from the stable isotope composition of archaeobotanical remains
Carbon isotope discrimination (Δ13C) in charred grains from archaeological sites provides reliable information about water availability of ancient crops. However, as cereals are cultivated plants,… Expand
Mixed models including environmental covariables for studying QTL by environment interaction
The study of the phenotypic responses of a set of genotypes in their dependence on the environment has always been an important area of research in plant breeding. Non-parallelism of those responses… Expand
Chlorophyll fluorescence as a selection criterion for grain yield in durum wheat under Mediterranean conditions.
Abstract The relationships between different fast (non-modulated) chlorophyll fluorescence parameters measured in the field and yield were studied in durum wheat (Triticum durum Desf.) grown in a… Expand
Δ13C and tree-ring width reflect different drought responses in Quercus ilex and Pinus halepensis
Holm oak (Quercus ilex L.) and Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis Mill) are representative of two different functional types of trees extensively found in the Mediterranean: evergreen sclerophyllous and… Expand

Winter-drought induced forest diebacks in the low-latitude margins of species' distribution ranges can provide new insights into the mechanisms (carbon starvation, hydraulic failure) underlying… Expand
Identification of Ancient Irrigation Practices based on the Carbon Isotope Discrimination of Plant Seeds: a Case Study from the South-East Iberian Peninsula
Abstract This study presents the analysis of carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) in cereal and faba bean seeds from archaeological sites as a rapid method of evaluating the occurrence or otherwise of… Expand

Stable isotopes are extensively used as tracers for the study of plant-water sources. Isotope-ratio infrared spectroscopy (IRIS) offers a cheaper alternative to isotope-ratio mass spectroscopy… Expand
Use of carbon isotope composition in monitoring environmental changes
In this work we will discuss the suitability of carbon isotope analysis in plants for the assessment of environmental changes and their effects on crops and natural systems. For C3 species, carbon… Expand
