    Abstract

    Bud burst is a critical transition in temperate perennial trees and crops, which sets in motion the resumption of growth in early spring. This thesis elaborates the knowledge of physiology and bimolecular processes of bud burst in grapevine, integrating physiology with genomic regulation. The centrepiece is the role of tissue oxygen tension and reactive oxygen species in enabling orderly transition from heterotrophic to photoautotrophic metabolism, and how the developmental transition from quiescence to bud burst is achieved. This study provides the founding platform for a better understanding of the developmental and ecological regulation of bud burst in temperate perennial trees.
