biochemical adjustment that protect them from injury when environmental stresses abruptly occur. Cold acclimation (CA) is a phenomenon that occurs when the freezing tolerance of plants increases after exposure to low, nonfreezing temperatures ( Thomashow, 1999

for specific geographic locations, it is important to study freezing tolerance in this species. Thus, this 2-year experiment was initiated to examine relative freezing tolerance of 27 saltgrass ecotypes collected in three U.S. zones of cold hardiness

( Duncan and Carrow, 1999 ). Improving cold tolerance of warm-season turfgrasses such as seashore paspalum is important to expand the range of use and extend the growing season throughout cooler climates. Limited progress has been made in the improvement of

the agricultural losses due to chilling. In this investigation, we report that multiple H 2 O 2 treatments induce a chilling tolerance comparable to cold acclimation in mung bean seedlings. However, in their response to light, the mechanisms of H 2 O

necrosis in green ash was associated with tree N status and observed that it was more influenced by fertilizer type than by N application rate ( Scagel et al., 2010 ). The specific relationships among cold tolerance, plant N status, fertilizer formulations

States are planted to Malling rootstocks that lack cold-hardiness or tolerance of subfreezing temperatures ( Embree, 1988 ) and B.9, which has greater cold-hardiness ( Quamme and Brownlee, 1997 ). Based on controlled studies and tree survival under
