The precision they provide permits researchers to categorise crops that experience no longer been topic to rigorous class sooner than and therefore permits them to receive a clearer photo of evolutionary relationships. Plant Molecular Systematics is prepared either conceptually and phylogenetically to house the pursuits not just of common systematists, but additionally these of individuals drawn to a specific plant relations.

Sample text

In plants, both two component sensors and hybrid histidin kinases have been described in the pathways of response to ethylene and cytokinines; it is likely that histidin kinases are also the basis of the osmotic response [31 and references therein]. Although hik33 and hik19 homologous genes have not been found in CHILLING AND FREEZING 29 plants, cold-induced response regulators have been described in Arabidopsis, suggesting that higher plants could employ histidin kinase cold sensors [32]. Although demonstrated only at a crude physiological level, the concept of a "biological thermometer" as a sensor detecting changes in membrane fluidity is accepted also for higher plants [33].

Cold adaptation depends on changes in the expression levels of specific genes, whose products are able to confer greater tolerance to stress conditions. In this sense "acclimation is the expression of the genetic potential under inductive conditions" [7]. 26 M. BRACALE AND I. 1. Responses and damages induced by cold stress in plants Owing to the great complexity of plant response to cold, it should be emphasised that it is often difficult to distinguish clearly between cold damages and adaptive responses.
