Oxygen fluxes into and from root cells of Vitis rupestris (flooding sensitive), V. riparia (flooding tolerant) and V. vinifera (medium tolerance to flooding) were measured under different levels of O2 availability using a recently developed polarographic O2-selective, vibrating-microelectrode system. The system enables fluxes to be measured with a spatial(More)
A parentage and a paternity-based approach were tested for estimation of pollen-mediated gene flow in wild grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. subsp. silvestris), a wind-pollinated species occurring in Mediterranean Europe and southwestern Asia. For this purpose, 305 seedlings collected in 2 years at 2 locations in France from 4 wild female individuals and 417(More)
Plasmopara viticola, the causal agent of grapevine downy mildew, is one of the most devastating grape pathogen in Europe and North America. Although phytochemicals are used to control pathogen infections, the appearance of resistant strains and the concern for possible adverse effects on environment and human health are increasing the search for alternative(More)
The efficacy of eight protein hydrolysates (PHs) of different origins, i.e., soybean (SoyA and SoyB), lupin (LupF and LupP), pea (Pea), yeast (Yeast), casein (Cas), and malt (Cer), in controlling gray mould of grapes, caused by Botrytis cinerea, was evaluated. In in vitro trials, the different PHs did not affect pathogen growth. Whereas, in in vivo trials,(More)
