Plants Surprisingly Temperature Sensitive

GreenTracker| Plants are so temperature sensitive that they can perceive changes as small as one degree Celsius. Not only do these green beings ‘feel’ the temperature rise, they they activate hundreds of genes — while deactivating others —  to coordinate an appropriate response.

“We’ve uncovered a master regulator of the entire temperature transcriptome,” said Philip Wigge of John Innes Centre in the United Kingdom in reference to the thousands of genes that are differentially activated under warmer versus cooler conditions. via Science Daily
