How will climate change influence grapevine cv. Tempranillo photosynthesis under different soil textures?

While photosynthetic responses to elevated CO2, elevated temperature, or water availability have previously been reported for grapevine as responses to single stress factors, reports on the combined effect of multiple stress factors are scarce. In the present work, we evaluated effects of simulated climate change [CC; 700 ppm CO2, 28/18 °C, and 33/53 % relative humidity (RH), day/night] versus current conditions (375 ppm CO2, 24/14 °C, and 45/65 % RH), water availability (well-irrigated vs. water deficit), and different types of soil textures (41, 19, and 8 % of soil clay contents) on grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. cv.

Microbiology holds the key to better wastewater treatment

For the past year a University of Adelaide team led by Associate Professor Paul Grbin and chief investigator Dr Kathryn Eales has analysed samples collected regularly from four Australian wineries with biological wastewater treatment plants, while also keeping a watching brief on 32 others.The aim is to integrate commonly collected information, such as chemical practices, with a detailed study of the microbiology underpinning all the processes and look at this in terms of actual operational practice.The ultimate goal is to develop guidelines or new tools that can be adopted in

A novel system for evaluating drought-cold tolerance of grapevines using chlorophyll fluorescence.

BACKGROUND:Grape production in continental climatic regions suffers from the combination of drought and cold stresses during winter. Developing a reliable system to simulate combined drought-cold stress and to determine physiological responses and regulatory mechanisms is important. Evaluating tolerance to combined stress at germplasm level is crucial to select parents for breeding grapevines.RESULTS:In the present study, two species, namely,Vitis amurensis and V. vinifera cv. ‘Muscat Hamburg’, were used to develop a reliable system for evaluating their tolerance to drought-cold stress. This system used tissue -cultured grapevine plants, 6% PEG solution, and

What Can the Brain Teach Us about Winemaking? An fMRI Study of Alcohol Level Preferences.

Over the last few decades,wine makers have been producing wines with a higher alcohol content, assuming that they are more appreciated by consumers. To test this hypothesis, we used functional magnetic imaging to compare reactions of human subjects to different types ofwine, focusing on brain regions critical for flavor processing and food reward. Participants were presented with carefully matched pairs of high- and low-alcohol content red wines, without informing them of any of thewine attributes. Contrary to expectation, significantly greater activation was found for low-alcohol than for high-alcohol content wines
