- ... Abiotic stresses, such as soil water deficit and high soil solution salts, can lead to negative impacts on crop growth, productivity and quality, impacting industry profitability. The first contact of the tree with these stresses is the root system, providing the possibility of improving tree resilience by rootstock choice. Identifying almond rootstock genotypes with high stress tolerance is, cons ...

- ... Earth system models (ESMs) use photosynthetic capacity, indexed by the maximum Rubisco carboxylation rate (Vcₘₐₓ), to simulate carbon assimilation and typically rely on empirical estimates, including an assumed dependence on leaf nitrogen determined from soil fertility. In contrast, new theory, based on biochemical coordination and co‐optimization of carboxylation and water costs for photosynthesi ...
