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)
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)
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)
The stability of superconducting wires is a crucial task in the design of safe and reliable superconducting magnets. These magnets are prone to premature quenches due to local releases of energy. In order to simulate these energy disturbances, various heater technologies have been developed, such as coated tips, graphite pastes, and inductive coils. The(More)
An inductively coupled plasma torch (ICPT) system was used to synthesize nanosilica particles starting both from glass powders from fluorescent lamps and tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) as precursors. The effect of the curtain gas on nanoparticles size, morphology and composition was studied by the use of BET, SEM and EDS analysis.
During the last years spin-polarized transport became a matter of major interest [1, 2], giving rise to a eld usually called magnetoelectronics, or spintronics. Much e ort has been made in studying and producing the so-called spin-valve, where a spin-polarized current is generated. A promising system in that area is the recently grown structure of GaAs/AlAs(More)
