About this book

Covers the latest and most significant advances in woody plant stress research. Provides innovative research on:
the freezing process - ice nucleation, propagation, and deep supercooling in woody plants
the biology of dormancy induction and release in woody plants - physiologic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms
the physiology and regulation of seasonal nitrogen cycling in woody plants
the importance of dehydrins - a unique class of stress proteins-in cold hardening of certain woody plants
nitrogen-fixation as a stress-avoidance strategy in certain woody plants
