The taxonomy of Chinese wild grapes can be traced back to the end of the 18 th century. However, most research in this field was performed in the last three decades. On the basis of the data from the Chinese wild grape germplasm collected in the last 25 years at the College of Horticulture, Northwest A&F University, Yangling, Shaanxi, China, and publications by other scientists in China, we concluded there were 40 species, 1 subspecies, and 13 varieties of Chinese wild grapes. These were… 

Diversity Analysis of Chinese Wild Grape Species

The results have showed that the Chinese wild grape has rich diversity in main phenophase, young shoot down,young shoot color,blade shape,blade color,teeth,berry size,skin color,berry flavor,floral organs and so on, with abundant genetic diversity.

Grape species and varieties

Vitisshizishanensis, a new species of the grape genus from Hubei province, China

Abstract Vitisshizishanensis (Vitaceae), a new species from Hubei, China, is described and illustrated. It is morphologically similar to V.flexuosa and V.bryoniifolia, but differs in leaf lobing and

Title Identification of two novel powdery mildew resistance loci , Ren 6 and Ren 7 , from the wild Chinese grape species

Background: Grapevine powdery mildew Erysiphe necator is a major fungal disease in all grape growing countries worldwide. Breeding for resistance to this disease is crucial to avoid extensive

On the recognition of the long neglected Vitisadenoclada Hand.-Mazz. (Vitaceae) from southern China

Vitisadenoclada may be a species of hybrid origin, with the highly tomentose Vitisheyneana as one of the parental species, and likely the glandular-hair bearing V.davidii as the other parental species.

Identification of mildew resistance in wild and cultivated Central Asian grape germplasm

Evidence that powdery mildew resistance is present in V. vinifera subsp.

Morphological variability in leaves of Chinese wild Vitis species

Identification of two novel powdery mildew resistance loci, Ren6 and Ren7, from the wild Chinese grape species Vitis piasezkii

A comparison of the kinetics of induction of powdery mildew resistance mediated by Ren6, Ren7 and the Run1 locus from Muscadinia rotundifolia indicated that the speed and strength of resistance conferred by Ren 6 is greater than that of Run1 which, in turn, is superior to that conferred byRen7.



A taxonomical study on the genus (Vitis L.) in Henan

Having been treated the 16 OTUs and their 66 characters in morphylogy and anatomy by the sequential clustering (nearest neighbor clustering method) analysis, the relatoinships of these OTUs have been defined tentatively.

Progress in grapevine breeding

The aim of a number of grapevine breeding programs throughout the world is to develop new varieties resistant to diseases using complex hybrids between European and American species of Vitis, but it is essential to maintain heterozygosity and desirable hybrids are multiplied by asexual propagation.
