The importance of low temperature stress physiology research has become increasingly apparent in agriculture for productions of food, fibre and ornamental plants. This volume consists of two parts, there are a total of 14 chapters including 6 chapters dealing with cold accumulation related topics, 6 dealing with freeze stress and 2 related to ethylene production and mefluidide protection.
Part 1: Responses of Chilling-Insensitive Plants to Low Stress Temperatures � The Induction of Cold Accumulation 1. Metabolic Consequences of Love Temperature Stress 2. Alterations of Plasma Membranes 3. Development at Cold-Hardening Temperatures 4. The Role of Phenolic Compounds in Plant Stress Response 5. Ethylene Induced Stress Resistance 6. Environmental Control of Growth Behaviour and Cold Hardiness in Artic and Subarctic Plants 7. Low Temperature Injury in Winter Cereals: Plasma Membrane H+ -Atpase 8. Cryopreservation of Plant Cells and Organs 9. Forecasting Hardiness for Winter Cold Protection in Peach Orchards Part 2: Responses of Chilling-Sensitive Plants to Low Stress Temperatures- Mefluidide 10. Relation of Chilling Stress to Ethylene Production
