Cold Hardiness and Cold Acclimation

In connection with cold response we would like to introduce two terms- cold hardiness and cold acclimation.

  1. Cold-hardiness refers to the ability of a plant tissue to survive ice formation.
  2. Cold-acclimation refers to the gradual changes in a plant from a freezing-sensitive to a freezing-resistant state upon exposure to cold conditions.
