The effects of low temperatures and ice formation are of profound importance in many subdivisions of biology, including plant science, animal science, entomology, microbiology, medical science, veterinary medicine and food science. In many instances, the economic aspects of low temperature biology are substantial, particularly in agriculture and the food industry, and in cryopreservation and organ transplantation. The first volume in the "Advances in Low-Temperature Biology" series contains studies of vitrification from both a biological and physical perspective, thermodynamics and modelling of intracellular ice formation, insect cold hardiness, cryostability of proteins, and adaptations in the photosynthetic activity of freezing-tolerant plants. These articles aim to provide new information to scientists working in these particular areas and are intended for scientists concerned with other areas of low termperature biology.
