Low Temperature Stress in Crop Plants: The Role of the Membrane contains the proceedings of an international seminar on ""Low Temperature Stress in Crop Plants"" held at the East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, March 26-30, 1979.
Organized into five parts, this book focuses on the fundamental mechanisms involved in the temperature response of crop plants. It examines the hypotheses related to the primary temperature sensor in crop plants and the mechanisms of low temperature injury. It also explores the genetic potential for cold resistance. Special topics related to the utilization of Arrhenius plots of the temperature response of plants are also discussed.
