thermoperiodism

Thermoperiodism is the influence of temperature on plant behavior. There are three types of thermoperiodism: annual, daily and aperiodic.

Thermoperiodism is the influence of temperature variables, more specifically cold temperatures, on the behavior of plants. Some vegetables like wheat and rye, for example, need cold temperatures to bloom and develop. This process of submitting the plant to receive the necessary cold is called vernalization.

There are three types of thermoperiodism: annual, daily and aperiodic. Each type is equivalent to annual, daily or aperiodic thermoperiodic periods. Thermoperiodism is important in the geographical distribution of cultures.
