Advances in Plant Cold Hardiness
Advances in Plant Cold Hardiness provides a detailed, up-to-date discussion of plant cold hardiness research. The molecular mechanisms of plant cold hardiness development, a subject not covered in any other low temperature stress book, is examined in depth. Other major topics addressed include the freezing tolerance and injury of plant tissues in vivo and in vitro, in addition to how research findings impact agricultural applications.
The articles featured in Advances in Plant Cold Hardiness were presented as key papers at the 4th International Plant Cold Hardiness Seminar held at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala in July, 1991. The book will appeal to all researchers, students, and instructors in plant biology, agriculture, and forestry.
