Measure of Cold Hardiness. Freezing Stress in 1 + 1. Douglas-Fir Seedlings. A new method to test plants for frost hardiness was developed by placing the top of container plants downwards in a computer-controlled freezer and keeping the roots upwards above an insulated cover - the upside down freezing test. Four cultivars of Ilex spp. were freeze tested 3 times during the autumn/winter 1999 at -10, -16, and -22°C and compared with control plants kept at 4°C. Electrolyte leakage from leaves of the freeze tested plants was measured and Index of Injury (It) was calculated.

How plants adapt to freezing temperatures and acclimate to survive the for-mation of ice within their tissues has . The term cold hardiness is used to represent in a general sense, the ability of a plant to adapt to and withstand freezing temperatures.

How plants adapt to freezing temperatures and acclimate to survive the for-mation of ice within their tissues has been a subject of study for botanists and plant scientists since the latter part of the 19th century. In recent years, there has been an explosion of information on this topic and molecular biology has provided new and exciting opportunities to better understand the genes involved in cold adaptation, freezing response and environmental stress in general.

Hardiness of plants describes their ability to survive adverse growing conditions. It is usually limited to discussions of climatic adversity. Thus a plant's ability to tolerate cold, heat, drought, flooding, or wind are typically considered measurements of hardiness. Hardiness of plants is defined by their native extent's geographic location: longitude, latitude and elevation. These attributes are often simplified to a hardiness zone.

Read unlimited books and audiobooks on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android. This text first addresses the freezing stress in plants in nature, in the field, or as a result of laboratory experiments intended to explain the process. Some chapters follow that discuss the effect of cold acclimation and freezing on plant's cell membrane, the mechanism of cold acclimation in plants, and the super cooling stress in plants. The survival, breeding, cryopreservation, and cryoprotection of plants are also explained
