Revue de presse

""Professor Markus Keller has written an extraordinary text book of grapevine physiology, whose nature and scope exceed anything available in the English language. While the title is ""The Science of Grapevines, Anatomy and Physiology"", there is far more physiology than anatomy, and of the physiology much of it is at the whole plant level. Where necessary, Keller however invokes explanations at organ tissue or cell level, but the major emphasis is to understand the grapevine's response to its environment. The author makes no apology to use data from other plants where necessary. This leads Keller to propose, in his preface, that such knowledge "" might help...further our understanding of the world's most important and arguably most malleable fruit crop"". Why is this book so extraordinary? Because it is so well referenced! There are 310 pages of text, divided into 7 very logical chapters. There are 57 pages of references, containing an estimated 1650 citations. These are very comprehensive, of necessity mostly contemporary, but including reference to Charles Darwin's studies with the grapevine published in 1875, the first viticulture text book I have seen to do this. Keller's magnificent book is a gift to teachers and students of grapevine physiology. It is easy to read, and well indexed. There are limited illustrations and colour photographs from the authors collection. The book's strength is in the comprehensive and integrative treatment of grapevine physiology.""--Dr Richard E Smart, Smart Viticulture and RuralSmart, Tasmania, Australia

""Markus Keller has done a great favor to passionate grape growers around the globe. He has written a user friendly textbook about how grapevines work. Many grape growers do not have formal education in viticulture and lack a foundation of knowledge in biology and plant science. While it is not essential to have a deep understanding about how a grapevine works, just as having a rudimentary understanding of how the human body works, this knowledge can lead to better plant maintenance and health. Above all, Dr. Keller's book connects the scientific to the practical, which is what all farmers crave. The typical grape grower possesses a intellectual curiosity and relationship with the vine and wants to know why things happen in the vineyard.nbsp; It is a worthy successor to Mullin's, et al. Biology of the Grapevine (1992), for example, updating the correct scientific name for crown gall (Agrobacterium vitis) and offering suggestions about how to treat affected vines. Photographs, illustrations, graphs and charts are all carefully selected and help to illuminate selected topics in the text. It was especially inventive to adopt the Consumer Reports-style rating system for the agronomic characteristics of important grapevine rootstocks (Table 1.3). Correct canopy management is a core practice to every competent grape grower and can greatly influence fruit quality every growing season. Dr. Keller provides his exact ""ideal"" canopy parameters that growers can use for their vines to achieve the balance and quality necessary to produce high quality grapes. As grape growers push their vines and fruit past veraison into the critical ripening period Dr. Keller explains the contribution of the essential components of light, temperature, water, nutrients and yield to achieving optimal fruit maturity. Finally, as growers push vines to their physiological limits in order to produce ever riper fruit, diseases, viruses and abiotic stresses have become an increasingly important part of vineyard management and sustainability, and these are thoroughly covered in The Science of Grapevines. Whether you have a degree in viticulture or not, or consider yourself a science person or not, this is essential reading. The reference section alone provides a lifetime's worth of reading about the essential nature of the vine, more than any grower or extension educator like myself could ever wish to consume. I wish all readers of this fine book could know Markus Keller. The book reads exactly as Markus thinks and speaks, with great passion, informality, humor and every sentence is packed with information. I believe you will emerge from reading this book a better grape grower, and that will very likely have a positive impact on the quality of your grapes and your bottom line.""--Mark L. Chien, Penn State Cooperative Extension, College of Agricultural Sciences, Lancaster PA, USA

"A significant addition to the viticulture literature. Keller (Washington State Univ.) chronicles current knowledge and introduces recent findings at the forefront of scientific understanding of plant processes and physiology. These findings come from viticulture research as well as research related to other perennial and annual plants. The presentation is clear and will be readily understood by all plant scientists, viticulturists in particular. Keller offers a wealth of supporting literature gleaned during viticultural experiences in Switzerland, New York, Australia, and Washington State. Experiences with grapevines cultured over a range of limiting environmental conditions are the basis for the excellent photographs, figures, and tables that exemplify the text material. The text is logically organized, and each topic flows fluidly into the next. This book will be a valuable resource for all instructors of viticulture students and should be owned and read by every critical-thinking plant scientist who has responsibility for grape and wine research. Keller presents a needed, fresh, well-written view of the science of this most fascinating biological organism, the grapevine. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”--CHOICE

""A comprehensive study of grapevine physiology that focuses on the physical and biological functions of the whole vine and their response to the environment.. Highly recommended.""--Wines amp; Vines

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 have 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.

* Provides global coverage of grapevines, including the regional differences, similarities, challenges and potential changes * Avoids jargon while bringing the reader into this important aspect of the wine industry

* Classroom proven by a leading expert in grapevine anatomy

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Only book with coverage of worldwide grape growing physiology 12 mars 2010
Par Michael A. Duvernois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Especially at this price point, this will be mostly used as a textbook for viticulture students. Previous book focused on one or two regional grape growing strategies and practices, but today an increasingly large number of viticulturists are traveling seasonally to work the southern grapes (Chile, Argentina, Australian, New Zealand, and South Africa) and then the northern grapes (Europe, Canada, and the United States). With this international flow of people, it's natural that the text also covers all of the international variations in grape growing.

The author has worked with grapes worldwide and is currently at the Washington State University. The book is technical, but relatively easy to follow. In addition to coverage of the established scientific aspects of grape growing, there is also coverage of emerging issues such as global warming and water availability as they relate to grapevine growing. Suitable for self-study with a minimal botany (or farm) background.

Book sections:
- Botany and Anatomy
- Phenology and Growth Cycle
- Water Relations and Nutrient Update
- Photosynthesis and Respiration
- Partitioning of Assimilates
- Developmental Physiology
- Environmental Constraints and Stress Physiology
- References
- Internet Resources

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Science of Grapevines: Anatomy and Physiology 25 mars 2010
Par M. Paterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
A very sound over view of both the anatomy and physiology of the vine, concentrating on the latter. An excellent bibliography. If you are a student of viticulture I recommend this to you as a reference - almost - if not quite - a one stop shop. Comprehensive in its coverage of the physiology (with enough botany and anatomy to form a basis), I thought it well constructed and sensibly lineal in its layout.

There is a degree of technical language - using this term instead of "jargon" - and I believe that interested (if not academic), growers would also find the book of value. It is not simplified in the sense it talks down to readers - it is not a "university tome" full off inexplicable terms.

It's thirty plus years since I was at college and this was an excellent refresher course. If a student was to add Whites book on Soils and Pongracz on vineyard management, they would form a pretty good three volume reference library for practical viticulture. In this context - five stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Science of Grapevines 22 mai 2012

When I ordered the book, I received a poor copy and posted the following review:

"While a great text, this is the poorest quality book I have ever purchased, much less for $120. The pages look like poor photocopies, and the pictures are low resolution black and white and basically indecipherable. I recommend the Kindle version, which has sharp enlargeable color photos, clear text and is much less expensive. Markus Keller deserves better."

It turns out the book I received was a misprint, and the publisher replaced it with a new one. The new one was what I expected, and of high quality.

This volume is the most comprehensive and readable recent book written on grape physiology I have found. It should be in the libraries of all those serious about viticulture and enology. It also should be considered as an upper-level text. Very well written, it can be read as a page-turner.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An essential read for the wine-grower 15 juin 2012

As I train the next person in line at the winery to become a qualified field representative to its growers reading this book stands out as the next best thing to having a degree in viticulture.
