The Traité de la vigne offers a detailed study of the state of scientific knowledge on the biology of the vine. Educational and richly illustrated, it brings together theory and practice in the service of a new vision of viticulture. The first part deals with the functioning of the vine from the fundamental concept of "biological triptych" (signal - structure - regulation system). The effects of water, CO2, solar radiation, temperature and mineral elements on the physiology of the vine are precisely described. Basic knowledge of grape metabolisms and vine genetics is developed. Finally, the basics of technical applications are presented. The second part is devoted to the environmental and technological aspects of vine growing: climate, climate change, agrometeorology, soil characteristics; development, soil maintenance and relationship with roots; cropping system, irrigation and management of the plant; new climatological approach; new technologies at the service of the regions; new theory of grape ripening. This fully updated third edition has been enriched with a color notebook. The result of an interdisciplinary collaboration, the Traité de la Vigne is aimed at students of agronomy, but also at professionals wishing to deepen or update their scientific and technical knowledge.
Under the direction ofAlain Carbonneau, Professor Emeritus of Viticulture at Montpellier SupAgro, scientist, expert in ecophysiology, terroirs and vine growing systems, Honorary President and founder of GiESCO. Laurent Torregrosa , Professor of Plant Biology and Genetics at the Agro Institute.
Collaborated: Philippe Abbat, Alain Deloire, Benoît Jaillard, Eric Lebon, Aurélie Metay, Hernán Ojeda, Florent Pantin, Anne Pellegrino, Charles Romieu.
