Abstract/Contents:Reports that in the "cool-humid region of North America, extensive ice sheets were laid down early before the first snow fall for the 1996-97 winter." Notes that low temperature kill increase due to these thick ice sheets. States that this increase of winter kill is not because of crown hydration but "the basic cause of direct low temperature kill in this case is a temperature sufficient low to cause lethal ice crystal formation within the meristematic plant tissues, which in many species are the crowns. Suggests that high potassium levels "reduce the potential for direct low temperature kill."
