Cover for Red clover in cropping systems.

Red clover has played an important role as a supplier of reactive nitrogen to cropping systems in European agriculture for hundreds of years. Today, it is mostly valued for its good nutritional properties for ruminants, and for reducing the need for nitrogen fertilizer inputs. Red clover is a...

Cover for Strategies of molecular adaptation to climate change: the challenges for amphibians and reptiles.

This chapter discusses the lives of ectothermic terrestrial vertebrates (amphibians and reptiles) and how they are affected by and adapt to changing environmental conditions. The focus is on species that have adapted to life in seasonally cold environments and examine some of the specialized...

Cover for Ice nucleation, propagation and deep supercooling: the lost tribes of freezing studies.

Prior to the emphasis on the molecular biology of cold acclimatization, considerable research was conducted on the processes of ice nucleation and deep supercooling. In many species, these two processes are critical to winter hardiness or surviving episodes of frost. Over the past two decades,...

Cover for Impact of simulated acid snow stress on leaves of cold-acclimated winter wheat.

Wintering plants may be subjected to long-term freezing at a high subzero temperature and strong acid stress due to condensation of acid pollutants under the acid snow layer in winter. Additionally, light may be a potent stress factor, especially for wintering plants after severe freeze-thawing at...

Cover for Cold hardiness in Antarctic vascular plants.

To survive in the Antarctic, plants must be able to cope with severe physiological stresses, especially during the growing season (Antarctic summer), caused by low temperature and repeated freezing and thawing, desiccation, low availability of water, and high irradiance. The aim of the present...

Cover for Winter hardiness and the <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">CBF</i> genes in the Triticeae.

This chapter provides a discussion of the molecular genetics underlying the vernalization requirement and freezing tolerance in the Triticeae. Recent genetic analyses in wheat and barley indicate that two major loci in each of these two plants affect winter hardiness: Frost Resistance-1 (FR-1) and ...

Cover for Ice encasement damage on grass crops and alpine plants in Iceland - impact of climate change.

Ice encasement damage is related to the absence of oxygen and the exact cause of death has mainly been studied on winter cereals in Canada. In the present chapter, information is presented on the impact of winter damage, especially ice encasement, on grass survival and agriculture in Iceland in the ...

Cover for Control of growth and cold acclimation in silver birch.

Birch (Betula pendula) is an excellent model in studying seasonal responses of woody perennials, made feasible by the rapid development of genomic techniques. This paper emphasizes that studying trees at the genomic level may thus not only give answers to topics in wood formation, but also help to...
