Plant physiological response to elevated night temperature Chapter uri icon

abstract

  • © 2012 by Apple Academic Press, Inc. Global climate warming can affect functioning of crops and plants in the natural environment. In order to study the effects of global warming, a method for applying a controlled heating treatment to plant canopies in the open field or in the greenhouse is needed that can accept either square wave application of elevated temperature or a complex prescribed diurnal or seasonal temperature regime. The current options are limited in their accuracy, precision, reliability, mobility, or cost and scalability.
