Description: Horticultural Reviews presents state–of–the–art reviews on topics in the horticultural sciences. The emphasis is on applied topics including the production of fruits, vegetables, nut crops, and ornamental plants of commerical importance. The title appears in the form of two volumes per year. These articles perform the valuable function of(More)
Adaptive methods are commonly used for tracking of the time-varying characteristics of non-stationary signals. In many cases of particular interest is the tracking of spectral properties of a narrow band random signal. When using linear models the parameters of the underlying model have seldom any special meaning. With this kind of models however the roots(More)
Ideotypes are a popular concept for plant breeders, who designate as such the ideal combinations of traits in a particular genotype to reach a pre-set production objective within a given socio-economic context. The historical, ‘genetic’ view of ideotypes has been more recently extended to cover the design of plant genotypes for specific cropping systems(More)
Plant architectural traits have been reported to impact pest and disease, i.e., attackers, incidence on several crops and to potentially provide alternative, although partial, solutions to limit chemical applications. In this paper, we introduce the major concepts of plant architecture analysis that can be used for investigating plant interactions with(More)
Arboricultural practices such as pruning, artificial bending or fruit thinning are crucial interventions in orchard management and are used for controlling tree size, penetration of light into the canopy and the equilibrium between vegetative and reproductive growth. The aim of this project is to explore the possibility of integrating such practices in a(More)
