This thesis has revealed distinct physiological differences between wheat varieties and provided an overview of the metabolic and proteomic temperature responses resulting from both a mild decrease from optimal temperature and a mild frost event. This research has revealed multiple metabolic pathways that are potential bottlenecks of metabolism during low temperature exposure and recovery, which will help in identifying useful biomarkers for future breeding projects to enhance frost tolerance in wheat to maintain yield. By mitigating production losses resulting from extreme temperature events including frost, this research will contribute towards reducing the impacts of the developing global food crisis.
