Heat stress is the deleterious effect of high temperature (HT) on seed germination, seedling establishment, plant growth and development and even survival, while heat tolerance is the resistant ability of plants to HT stress by repair and reestablishment of biomembrane, synthesis of heat shock protein, enhancement of MG detoxification and antioxidant defense systems, and the accumulation of osmolytes (Li et al.
