The influence of an air temperature increase by 4°C and nutrient solution cooling down to 5 ± 1°C on stomatal conductance and hormone level of seven-day-old wheat (Triticum durum L., cv. Bezenchukskaya 139) seedlings was studied. An elevated air temperature resulted in a rapid rise of stomatal conductance preceded by the increase in the level of cytokinins in leaves. Cooling of the nutrient solution induced gradual stomatal closure along with a decreasing cytokinin level in leaves. Hormone concentration in the xylem sap of wheat seedlings was determined, and the rate of hormone transport from the roots to shoots was calculated. The role of cytokinins in the regulation of stomatal conductance under conditions of local thermal treatments is discussed.
