Photoperiodic Control of Dormancy and Flowering in Trees
Plants as sessile and poikilothermic organisms have to grow, reproduce, and survive in a wide variety of environmental conditions. Consequently, plants have evolved an array of adaptive strategies, both physiological and developmental, that allow them to recognize different environmental variables, which then trigger the responses required for optimal growth and survival. This chapter integrates recent findings in annual long-day plants (Arabidopsis) and short-day plants (rice and morning glory), and in woody plants (Populus), respectively, in order to examine photoperiodic control of dormancy and flowering in trees.
