Table 1 Relative Water Content (RWC) and leaf temperature of durum wheat plants subjected to drought, heat and to a combination of drought and heat stress

From: Different stress responsive strategies to drought and heat in two durum wheat cultivars with contrasting water use efficiency

Genotype Stress condition RWC (%) Leaf temperature (°C)
Ofanto Control 96.97 ± 1.47 21.62 ± 0.16
  Drought stress 94.04 ± 1.08 21.70 ± 0.07
  Heat stress 85.96 ± 2.02 35.42 ± 0.65
  Combined stress 59.34 ± 2.34 38.36 ± 0.98
Cappelli Control 95.86 ± 1.06 22.50 ± 0.55
  Drought stress 88.68 ± 0.54 22.00 ± 0.10
  Heat stress 82.88 ± 0.45 36.50 ± 0.50
  Combined stress 38.53 ± 8.02 41.00 ± 0.20
  1. RWC and temperature were determined on the leaf below flag leaf that was used for transcriptomic analysis.
