Complexity characterises the study of cold tolerance: first of all, different plant species and, within a species, different cultivars display different degrees of sensibility to cold. Second, cold tolerance depends not only on the severity and duration of the stress, but also on the rate of cooling, on seasonal and diurnal plant activities, on the concomitant presence of other environmental conditions as, for example, air humidity, water soil availability, wind presence (causing dehydration), light intensity (causing photoinhibition).
