Global climate change is inducing a rise in the occurrence and intensity of abiotic stresses on plants. Flowering is a sensitive stage of ontogenesis. Flowering plants have evolved mechanisms to modulate the time to flower and flowering duration in order to secure seed production. It is known that flowering is regulated by photoperiod and/or vernalization. Flowering can also be affected by stress. A variety of stress variables are closely related to climate changes, such as temperature and drought as well as other variables including light, nutrients, oxygen, and pruning, which can induce or accelerate flowering, or inhibit or delay flowering.
