Air and leaf temperature (T), net photosynthesis (Pn), Fv/Fm (PSII efficiency) and (Area) (plastoquinone pool size) in portions of whitish leaves, sprinkled with kaolin, and portions without kaolin present in the same leaves from treated vines. Data were taken 2 and 4 weeks after treatment (17 August and 31 August) in the interval 13.00-14.00.

  T air (°C) T leaf (°C) Pn (nmol CO2 m"2 s"1) Fv/Fm Area*
17 August 38.5        
Portion of leaf with kaolin   42.8 b 2.6 a 0.607 a 21000b
Portion of leaf without kaolin   47.6 a -0.3 b 0.283 b 10000 a
31 August 31.6
