Three grapevine varieties original from different climates: Grenache, from Mediterranean origin; Syrah, from mesic origin and Chardonnay, from the humid zone of Burgundy (France) were used to study differential physiological responses to water deficit and sub-sequent recovery after re-watering. Moreover, the effect of the environmental growing conditions on water use efficiency (WUE) was also studied. Changes of the lamina hydraulic conductance (K lamina ), transpiration, photosynthetic CO2… CONTINUE READING
