Many plant species develop freezing resistance when subject to low non-freezing temperatures, a physiological process known as cold acclimation. Cold acclimation is a dynamic process in which plants exposed to low but non-freezing temperatures acquire tolerance to sub-zero temperatures (Levitt, 1980).

As a first step, a genetic map construction was initiated and quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of frost hardiness and cold acclimation performed.
Winterhardiness is a complex trait (Guy, 1990) and requires the development of cold acclimation by exposing plants to low nonfreezing temperatures, typically 0 to 10[degrees]C, and shortened photoperiod (Thomashow, 1999).
