Abstract

Field death of dormant primary buds of Vitis labrusca L. cv. Concord may be effectively simulated by in situ puncture with an aluminum needle super-cooled by liquid N2. This allows the subsequent development of the secondary buds for studies of their growth and productivity.

Abstract

It has been necessary for perennial plants to develop systems for sensing and reacting to environmental parameters. Their survival and perpetuation is determined, in large measure, by the timing of vital processes in relation to favorable and unfavorable cycles of environment. While the regulation of flowering by environmental stimuli has been extensively researched little is known about the control of cold acclimation. Recent studies show striking similarities between the control mechanisms for flowering and cold acclimation in temperate zone plants.
