The long-term acclimation experiment was conducted subsequent to the above short-term acclimation experiment II.
The temperature was increased at a rate of 1[degrees]C [min.sup.-1] from each acclimation temperature.
After 10 days, Plants of pea breeding lines and cultivars were subjected to differential thermal analysis and cold acclimation.
At the end of the acclimation period, randomly selected organisms of each temperature were either exposed to critical thermal maximum CTMax-acute heat stress (AHS) or to the lethal temperature (LT50)-chronic heat stress (CHS) utilized in the studies of thermic tolerance in aquatic organisms.
Respiration rates at temperatures as low as or lower than 15[degrees]C are commonly used to assess "cool" respiratory metabolism in studies of [R.sub.D] acclimation [4, 10, 18].

First, AFT provides an estimate of CH across all stages of cold acclimation (i.e., autumn acclimation, midwinter maximum hardiness and spring deacclimation).
In addition to these issues, others must be considered: (i) the successful rearing of healthy bivalves under laboratory conditions is influenced by many stressors (such as collection, transport and maintenance procedures); (ii) the physiological effects of transport and the determination of acclimation time under laboratory conditions is not well known for freshwater bivalves, including the golden mussel; (iii) the acclimation of animals (e.g., bivalves and fishes) under laboratory conditions for experimental testing is important; and (iv) there is a high demand for studies with bioassays using the golden mussel.

salvadorensis to different light conditions in terms of plant height, leaf number and production, might not be effective indicators of the acclimation of the species to different light environments, at least during the short period investigated, contrary of what happened with variables from foliar physiology and biomass allocation.
