The effect of diffusional and photochemical limitations to photosynthesis was assessed in field-grown water-stressed grapevines (Vitis vinifera L.) by combined measurements of gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence. Drought was slowly induced, and the progressive decline of photosynthesis was examined in different grapevine cultivars along a continuous gradient of maximum mid-morning values of stomatal conductance (g), which were used as an integrative indicator of the water-stress… CONTINUE READING
