Viewed : 1264 - Downloaded : 1369 Plant diversity and distribution are strongly controlled by climatic conditions such as frost, cold weather and water availability. Even in subtropical climatic zones, cold and frost damages in plants are frequently encountered. Resistance mechanisms of plants to cold damages are complex and still have a number of unknowns. This property is not only due to genetic structure and cultural methods, but also morphological properties of plants. Moreover, the differences in sensitiveness and tolerance of different organs against cold make the subject very complex, also. Clearing the mechanism of cold hardiness will help the growers and interested people to take necessary precautions to protect the plants in advance. Keywords :
