Abstract: Many agricultural plants of subtropical origin (eg, corn, rice, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers etc.) are also grown in the temperate zone, but in less optimal conditions. In this case, the reproduction of these plants must also take into consideration selecting genotypes tolerant to the new conditions, and through them creating tolerant varieties. The activity increase of the antioxidant defense system, due to negative effects of environmental stressors, develops over a long period of time, a process called adaptation. The elevated levels of the reactive oxygen species (ROS), determine the significant increase of the antioxidant enzymes’ activity, a process by which the plants are protected against the damaging effects of the oxidative stress
Keywords: UVB radiations, oxidative stress, wavelengths, temperature, thermal stress
