Project: Ecophysiological screening for chilling stress in ornamental plants to support a more energy-conscious greenhouse heating

project duration
01-OCT-05 – 30-SEP-07
abstract
The project aims to reveal the mechanisms that determine chilling stress and chilling tolerance. Therefore, the effects of different temperature strategies will be examined at three organizational levels: leaf, plant and crop level. Moreover, the study intends to develop a fast screening technique to assess chilling stress and to use this knowledge for optimization of the concept of temperature integration.
