Citrus plants exude proline and phytohormones under abiotic stress conditions
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
Key message This article describes the root exudation of proline and phytohormones in citrus and their involvement in salt- and heat-stress responses. Abstract Plants are constantly releasing several compounds to the ...
Zoophytophagous mirids provide pest controlby inducing direct defences, antixenosis andattraction to parasitoids in sweet pepper plants
BACKGROUND: In addition to their services as predators, mirid predators are able to induce plant defences by phytophagy.However, whether this induction occurs in sweet pepper and whether it could be an additional beneﬁt ...
Pest categorisation of Anthonomus quadrigibbus
The Panel on Plant Health performed a pest categorisation of the weevil Anthonomus quadrigibbus Say, (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), for the EU. A. quadrigibbus is a well-de fi ned and distinguishable species, recognised ...
Coordinating the overall stomatal response of plants: Rapid leaf-to-leaf communication during light stress
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018)
The plant canopy functions as an aerial array of light-harvesting antennas. To achieve maximal yield, each leaf within this array and the array as a whole need to rapidly adjust to naturally occurring fluctuations in light ...
Polyphenol and l-ascorbic acid content in tomato as influenced by high lycopene genotypes and organic farming at different environments
The accumulation of polyphenols and L - ascorbic acid was evaluated under conventional (integrated pest management, IPM) and organic farming, as means to increase the accumulation of chemoprotective compounds. The ...
Ecobiology of Anaphothrips obscurus, a new dweller of citrus orchards brought in by more sustainable pest management practices
1 The abundance and frequency of Anaphothrips obscurus (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) increased in a cover of Festuca arundinacea (Poaceae) when this plant was used to improve the biological control of the clementine key pest ...
Bio-ecology and integrated management of the red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), in the region of Valencia (Spain)
(Benaki Phytopathological Institute, 2012-01)
The invasive red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Olivier (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), is one of the most destructive pests of palms in the world. It is widely distributed in all continents and has been reported on ...
Involvement of the def-1 Mutation in the Response of Tomato Plants to Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis Under Well-Watered and Drought Conditions
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
Jasmonic acid (JA) and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) symbioses are known to protect plants against abiotic and biotic stresses, but are also involved in the regulation of root hydraulic conductance (L). The objective of ...
Involvement of ascorbate peroxidase and heat shock proteins on citrus tolerance to combined conditions of drought and high temperatures
Usually several environmental stresses occur in nature simultaneously causing a unique plant response. However, most of the studies until now have focused in individually-applied abiotic stress conditions. Carrizo citrange ...
Influence of controlled deficit irrigation on tomato functional value
The effect of controlled deficit irrigation (CDI) on the accumulation of carotenoids, polyphenols and l-ascorbic acid was studied in conventional and high lycopene tomato cultivars. Plants were initially irrigated to cover ...
