A rule-based and several neural network predictors are developed for identifying disordered regions in proteins. The rule-based predictor was suitable only for very long disordered regions, whereas the neural network predictors were developed separately for short-, medium-, and long-disordered regions (S-, M-, and LDRs, respectively). The out-of-sample(More)
We appraised the literature and described an approach to estimate the parameters of the Farquhar, von Caemmerer and Berry model using measured CO(2) assimilation rate (A) and photosystem II (PSII) electron transport efficiency (Phi(2)). The approach uses curve fitting to data of A and Phi(2) at various levels of incident irradiance (I(inc)), intercellular(More)
The influence of several regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) strategies, applied under subsurface drip irrigation (SDI), on vegetative development and yield parameters in mature almond (Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb, cv. Cartagenera) trees was analysed during a 4-year field experiment. Five treatments were applied: T1 (100% crop evapotranspiration (ETc),(More)
Intimate relationships exist between form and function of plants, determining many processes governing their growth and development. However, in most crop simulation models that have been created to simulate plant growth and, for example, predict biomass production, plant structure has been neglected. In this study, a detailed simulation model of growth and(More)
Differences between rootstocks, 'Cleopatra' mandarin and 'Carrizo' citrange, in soil-plant water relations and the influence of these factors on vigor, crop yield, fruit quality and mineral nutrition were evaluated in field-grown Clemenules mandarin trees irrigated at 100% of potential seasonal evaporation (ET(c)) (control treatment), or irrigated at 100%(More)
The influence of several regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) strategies under subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) conditions on water relations and gas exchange activity was analysed during a four year period for mature trees of a local variety of almond (Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb, cv. Cartagenera), in a commercial plantation in the district of Aljorra,(More)
Different spatial distributions of soil moisture were imposed on field-grown grapevines by applying the same irrigation volumes to the entire (DI; deficit irrigation) or part of the (PRD; partial root zone drying) root zone. Five treatments were applied: controls irrigated at 60% ETc (crop evapotranspiration) for the whole season (308 mm year(-1)); DI-1 and(More)
We investigated the effects of regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) during the pre-harvest period (kernel-filling stage) on water relations, leaf development and crop yield in mature almond (Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb cv. Cartagenera) trees during a 2-year field experiment. Trees were either irrigated at full-crop evapotranspiration (ETc=100%)(More)
A cost–benefit analysis was performed for a mature, commercial almond plantation [Prunus dulcis (Mill.) D.A. Webb] cv. Cartagenera in Southeastern Spain to determine the profitability of several regulated-deficit irrigation (RDI) strategies under subsurface drip irrigation conditions (SDI), compared to an irrigation regime covering 100% crop(More)
Cost-benefit analysis was performed to determine the profitability of producing wine grapes under different irrigation regimes. Vines irrigated by regulated deficit irrigation (RDI) and partial root-zone drying (PRD) were compared with vines grown under full irrigation in a typical vineyard in a semiarid environment with scarce water resources(More)
