The mechanisms by which plants translate cold perception into specific gene expression are not yet completely understood; the available evidence is not yet arranged into an overall coherent picture.

1. INTRODUCTION Plants can grow only in species-specific temperature intervals. Below the minimum temperature their performance is reduced by cold stress, one of the most serious abiotic environmental stress that plants have to cope with throughout their life cycle. In the next years, "a range of credible scenarios of greenhouse gas emission could increase radiative forcing to cause a 3-6°C increase in mean land surface temperature at high and temperate latitudes" [1]. Thus, the mean temperature will rise.
