Learning outcomes

MM: Teoria
In the module Viticultural Ecology and Physiology, various aspects of viticultural ecology are treated with regard to the description of environmental and biological factors that determine the cultivation areas of the grapevine. The influence of the environment and growing techniques on grape physiology is also examined. The student will learn how to consider the main climate and environmental parameters to understand the physiological response of the grapevine and their influence on grape yield and quality. Moreover, varietal-related responses to the growing environment will be discussed.
MM: Esercitazioni
In the training module, various technical and applicative aspects related to the recording, the elaboration and calculation dealing with environmental parameters will be treated. The students will increase their experience with the grapevine plants at some developmental stages and with the ecological and agronomical aspects of a vineyard. To this end, examples of techniques and approaches to measure physiological, agronomical and production parameters will be given.


MM: Teoria
- Ecological factors influencing grapevine development and conditioning the grapevine cultivation areas. Bioclimatic indices. - Annual and life cycle; vegetative and reproductive sub-cycles. Phenology and phenology classification systems. Factors impacting on phenology. Climate change. - Morphology and anatomy of the bud complex. Prompt bud, latent bud. Inflorescence induction and bud fruitfulness. Factors influencing fruitfulness. - Bud dormancy, bud break, flowering. Different flower types. Pollination and fertilization, fruit set. Partenocarpy, stenospermocarpy. Seed number and berry development. - The grape cluster, anatomy of the berry and of the seed. Classification, characteristics, biosynthesis, tissue localization of the major compounds of a ripe berry (organic acids, sugars, phenolics, etc.), and their changes during berry growth and ripening. - Regulation of development and ripening of the grape berry: the role of hormones; influence of the main environmental and growing factors; stress physiology and impact on grape ripening.
MM: Esercitazioni
Environmental parameters: recording, calculation and elaboration. Bio-climatic indexes calculation and interpretation. Recording of agronomical, physiological and production parameters from a plant or from a vineyard.

Examination Methods

MM: Teoria
The exam is oral for both students following and not following lectures. The aim of the exam is to assess the knowledge of the subjects listed in the course program. The ability to connect systemically different subjects, the deep knowledge and understanding of the subjects will be also matter of evaluation. The final vote will be expressed out of a maximum of 30 points.
MM: Esercitazioni
The exam is oral for both students following and not following lectures and will be held aside of the theory oral exam. The aim of the exam is to assess the knowledge of the subjects described during the training module.
