Temperaturas Extremas: Olas de Calor y Heladas
Sesión de viticultura en español

(Presentada en español)

Esta sesión se basa en la asistencia a un taller de enología o viticultura (9:00 am – 10:30 am) y dos sesiones integradas en español (10:45 am – 12:00 pm y 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm ) Tienes que asistir a tres sesiones para recibir un certificado. Se enviará un certificado de asistencia después de la conferencia.

El cambio climático puede causar efectos importantes en las condiciones culturales y en las estaciones de crecimiento de los viñedos. En esta sesión, se discutirá específicamente el impacto de temperaturas extremas: olas de calor y heladas. También se presentarán estrategias de manejo para proteger a las plantas de vid en estas situaciones límite.

Esther Hernández-Montes
Washington State University, Prosser

Esther Hernández-Montes obtained her Agricultural Engineering and master studies in the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain), and she completed a PhD at the University of Balearic Islands (Spain). The main research of her PhD was to study carbon and water balances in grapevines, focusing in determining carbon gains and losses in different plant organs throughout their development, considering the environmental and genetic variations. Also, she studied how environmental factors and vineyard management practices affect soil respiration and fruit respiration in a vineyard.
