THE INTEGRATION OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY WITH PHYSICAL CHANGES IN THE GREENHOUSE CLIMATE

K.E. Cockshull
A review is given of the physical changes in the greenhouse environment that accompany the adoption of different energy-saving measures. The effects of these changes in light, temperature, and humidity on plant responses are examined and their impact on the performance of a variety of different crops is assessed. Distinctions are drawn between the responses of single- and multiple-harvest crops and the problem of critical stages of plant development is considered. The evidence for developmental processes that respond to average temperature is also briefly reviewed.
