In this article, the author describes how some of his Dendrocalamus and Gigantochloa species of bamboo plant had recover from winter damage in California. He says that Dendrocalamus jianshuiensis was the last species to recover and was slower than hamiltonii in growing in the spring. He also observes that Gigantochloa atroviolacea has the ability to come back quickly after being frozen to the ground level.

    Frost hardiness (FH) of the shoots of silver birch (Betula pendula Roth) container seedlings was assessed by electrolyte leakage (EL), visual scoring of damage to the stem (SB), and whole-plant viability tests after controlled exposure to freezing during frost hardening. FH was calculated as the...

    Artificial freeze-testing utilizing the electrolyte-leakage method was used to test the cold hardiness of 2-year-old whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis Engelm.) seedlings growing in a common garden. Testing across all seasons was used to determine the annual pattern of cold hardiness, and more...

    To gain a better understanding of the proteins associated with cold acclimation and winter dormancy in apple trees ( Malus domestica), we studied the expression of a dehydrin gene encoding one of the important proteins involved in these processes. A novel gene, designated mddhn, was obtained...
