- ... Mediterranean woody species are vulnerable to multiple stresses that negatively affect plant survival and productivity. Drought and heat are increasing threats to the agricultural and forestry systems, making it urgently necessary to determine the mechanisms of plant adaptation and survival. Proteomics allows for the characterisation of a large number of proteins in a given tissue/organ, providing ...

- ... Predictions of climate change indicate an increase in water scarcity in Mediterranean areas. Therefore, improving water use efficiency (WUE) becomes crucial for sustainable viticulture in the Mediterranean for both grapevine growth and fruit productivity. Variability of WUE between cultivars presents an opportunity to select the most appropriate cultivars in viticultural areas with increasing arid ...
