It is interesting that plants can eventually acclimate fully in response to low temperatures in the absence of inductive photoperiods (67). This suggests that there is more than one route to resistance or more than one ignition key to start the machinery. In either case, the ability of plants to acclimate in response to more than one environmental stimulus provides adaptive flexibility which enhances survival potential.
