The Science of Grapevines PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Science of Grapevines free pdf Written by a recognized expert, and based on his experience in teaching the subject to students with a variety of educational backgrounds, "The Science of Grapevines: Anatomy and Physiology" is the only book to comprehensively explore the physiology of the grapevine as it occurs around the world. While other books have focused on the vines of specific regions, the globalization of the wine industry and the resulting increase of lands around the world being used for grapevine cultivation has left a gap in information. This book addresses not only the specific issues and concerns of grapevines from regions around the world, but includes important emerging topics such as global climate change, water relations, temperature effect and more. The truly unique approach of this book is the scientifically-grounded exploration, often applying discoveries in other plant species, of the main physiological processes underlying grapevine form and function, their interactions, developmental and environmental control, and their implications for practical vineyard management. This work focuses on the physiology of the whole plant rather than at the cellular and organ levels providing an understanding of whole-plant function. It offers comprehensive coverage of role of water relations and temperature impact that prepares the reader for changing climate impact. It includes European, North and South American grapes and grape-related industry information providing important insights into implications of differences - and similarities.
