About this book

The second volume of the new series Advances in Bioclimatology provides a comprehensive treatment of the physical aspects of frost occurrence and frost distribution, the biological and phenological aspects of frost damage,as well as the various direct and indirect methods of frost protection and prevention. It combines extensive reviews with detailed, illustrative case studies, the latter dealing with plant temperatures during frost, numerical models for frost prediction and mapping, regional frost risk mapping techniques, winterkill of wheat, and a model for frost protection by sprinkler irrigation. The Bioclimatology of Frost is of interest to researchers and students, but also of practical use for farmers and horticulturalists.
