Unravelling the contribution of the Penicillium expansum PeSte12 transcription factor to virulence during apple fruit infection
(Food Microbiology, 2017-08-12)
Microbiota of grapevine woody tissues with or without esca-foliar symptoms in northeast Spain
(Phytopathologia Mediterranea, 2018-07-20)
Grapevine Trunk Diseases (GTDs), particularly esca, are major concerns in Spain. This study characterized the fungal and bacterial communities in a 30-year-old ‘Cabernet Sauvignon’ vineyard in Catalonia, Spain. Six symptomatic ...
Prunus genetics and applications after de novo genome sequencing: achievements and prospects
(Horticulture Research, 2019-04-05)
Prior to the availability of whole-genome sequences, our understanding of the structural and functional aspects of Prunus tree genomes was limited mostly to molecular genetic mapping of important traits and development of ...
Mediterranean Green Roof Simulation in Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona): Thermal and Hydrological Performance Test of Frankenia laevis L., Dymondia margaretae Compton and Iris lutescens Lam
(Applied Sciences, 2018-12-05)
Green roofs provide a number of environmental advantages like increasing urban biodiversity, reducing pollution, easing burdens on drainage systems, and lowering energy costs thanks to thermal insulation. Frankenia laevis, ...
Extreme hydrological events and the influence of reservoirs in a highly regulated river basin of northeastern Spain
(Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies, 2017-04-13)
Study region The Segre basin (northeastern Spain). Study focus The Segre basin is extensively regulated, through a dense network of dams, during the second half of the 20th century. This study assessed the impact of ...
Hymenoptera Complex Associated with Myzus persicae and Hyalopterus spp. in Peach Orchards in Northeastern Spain and Prospects for Biological Control of Aphids
Aphids are a serious pest for peach crops. They have traditionally been managed with insecticides, but there is increasing concern about the risk that insecticides pose to both humans and the environment. As a first step ...
The Influence of Climate and Land-Cover Scenarios on Dam Management Strategies in a High Water Pressure Catchment in Northeast Spain
This paper evaluates the response of streamflow in a Mediterranean medium-scaled basin under land-use and climate change scenarios and its plausible implication on the management of Boadella–Darnius reservoir (NE Spain). ...
Monitoring resistance of Cydia pomonella (L.) Spanish field populations to new chemical insecticides and the mechanisms involved
(Pest Management Science, 2017-11-16)
BACKGROUND Widespread resistance of Cydia pomonella to organophosphates was demonstrated in populations from the Spanish Ebro Valley area which showed high levels of enzymatic detoxification. To determine the efficacy of ...
Variation in aquaporin and physiological responses among Pinus contorta families under different moisture conditions
A population of eight open pollinated families of Pinus contorta was selected from sites varying in precipitation regimes and elevation to examine the possible role of aquaporins in adaptation to different moisture ...
Multilevel comparative bioinformatics to investigate evolutionary relationships and specificities in gene annotations: an example for tomato and grapevine
(BMC Bioinformatics, 2018-11-30)
Background: “Omics” approaches may provide useful information for a deeper understanding of speciation events, diversification and function innovation. This can be achieved by investigating the molecular similarities at ...
