Climate change is affecting security of food production because of severe fluctuations in the world's weather. Many rare and endemic species are threatened by climate change. In situ conservation on its own cannot guarantee the survival of many endangered plant species. Therefore, in order to achieve the goal of conservation, simultaneous ex situ and in situ conservation is needed. Knowledge of plant micropropagation is very useful for developing several techniques for short/medium and long term conservation, such as slow growth storage and cryopreservation.

Over the past two decades, Georgia has become one of the largest producers of cultivated blueberries in the United States. As production expanded, several new blueberry yield/quality reducing diseases emerged. The most recent notable disease was Exobasidium leaf and fruit spot, caused by the newly described fungal pathogen Exobasidium maculosum. Although leaf spotting and quality-reducing green spots on fruit had been noted in producer fields for many years prior, it was considered more of a curiosity and not determined to be a production issue.

Electrical capacitance, inductance, and impedance (0.012, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 kHz) were measured, for predicting the water content of lime, with a coefficient of determination of 0.9 and measuring uncertainty of 1.8%. The results demonstrated the feasibility of the method.

The rising concept of ecosystem service has highlighted the importance of non-marketed performances delivered by ecosystems. In fruit production, providing acceptable food production levels while preserving natural resources and functions is currently a major challenge, and can be analyzed from the ecosystem service concept perspective. Apple orchards appear to be an interesting study field, as perennial production strongly impacts biogeochemical cycles and pest management within apple orchards deals with both market regulations and reduced use of pesticides.

Hector A. Camargo Alvarez

Flower fertilization and fruit set success in apples depend on the behavior of the pollen tube growth, namely, the pollen tube length after pollination and the time taken to reach the base of the style. Predicting these characteristics will assist in controlling the crop load, by permitting the fertilization of the desired number of flowers and discarding the rest by the use of chemicals which inhibit pollen tube growth prior to fertilization. The main factors affecting pollen tube growth rates are temperature and the resistance of the style tissue.

Carnations that have various petal colors have been generated not only by conventional cross breeding, but also by bud sport. Flower color mutation by bud sport is thought to occur as a result of periclinal chimaeras or transposons, however, the mechanism is still unknown. To elucidate the mechanism of flower color mutation by bud sport, I used a mutant cultivar group (MINAMI series) showing various petal colors, which had occurred by bud sport. The MINAMI series includes 10 commercial cultivars showing cyanic or acyanic flowers that originated from a pale yellow-flowered genotype.

The important role of cuticular waxes in the defense systems of plants is undeniable. However, very little is known about the chemistry of cuticular wax in the genus Fragaria L. The epicuticular wax crystal morphology was determined using scanning electron microscopy. A wide range of different structures were described. Twelve strawberry genotypes, including ten wild species, one cultivar and one hybrid after wild species introgression, covered the detected range of epicuticular crystal structures.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ethylene absorber (EA) on the postharvest life of bananas. EA could delay the senescence of bananas by reducing ethylene concentrations in storage chambers. Bananas selected for the study were at mature-green stage 2 of ripening, according to the banana ripeness chart (Postharvest Technology Center, UC Davis). Fruit were stored in the presence or absence of sachets of Ethyl Stopper (Bioconservacion S.A., Spain) containing KMnO4 at 20 or 14°C, and 95% relative humidity for 16 days.
