Summary "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."--Provided by publisher
