difference between photoperiodism and vernalization
Effects of photo periods ie,duration of light on flowering of plants is called photoperiodism.Although term"photoperiodism is a misnaumer because effect of dark period is of equal importance.Whereas use of low temperature for inducing flowering in plants is called Vernalization
The Photoperiodism is defined as the developmental responses of plants to the relative lengths of light and dark periods. It is a physiological reaction of plants to the length of day or night time. ... The Vernalization is a process of induction of flowering in plants by exposing them to prolonged cold temperature.
