Temperature has been the principal factor given by many workers to account for dormancy in woody plants, and various other explanations have also been advanced. Periodicity of growth has been observed in woody plants in tropical as well as temperate zones. However, temperature does not seem to be the limiting factor in growth when kept within the ranges necessary for plant growth activity, as woody plants brought into a greenhouse and kept at favorable temperatures during the winter frequently exhibit dormancy. Since the air temperature, soil, and moisture conditions are kept favorable to plant growth in greenhouses, the only other limiting factor to continued growth would seem to be length of day.
