Days after heat stress

Fig. 1.3.6. Hardening of fir needles after a heat stress treatment. Damage and hardening were measured by the photosynthetic activity of the needles. / Recovery phase after the initial heat stress treatment; 2 after the second heat stress treatment (44 °C, 30 min). The extent of damage and the length of the recovery phase (repair) are clearly less after the second stress treatment than they were upon the first heat pulse. (Larcher 1987)
