Adaptations shown by Herbaceous Plants in Relation to Seasonal Change

In some tropical countries the conditions of warmth and moisture are suitable for continual growth all the year round, but in Europe there are marked seasonal differences during the year which affect the growth of vegetation. In spring and summer conditions are suitable for plant growth, but in the winter plants are liable to die through lack of sufficient water caused by physiological drought. Herbaceous plants show various adaptations which enable them to persist during the winter. Such persistence of the plant during a difficult period is known as perennation, and this may be effected in a number of ways.
