Abstract

The terrestrial environment is complex, with many parameters fluctuating on daily and seasonal basis. Plants in particular, have developed complex sensory and signalling networks to extract and integrate information about their surroundings, in order to maximise their fitness and mitigate some of the detrimental effects of their sessile lifestyles. Light and temperature each provide crucial insight on the surrounding environment and in combination allow plants to appropriately develop, grow and adapt. Crosstalk between light and temperature signalling cascades allow plants to time key developmental decisions accordingly to ensure they are “in sync” with their environment. In this review, we discuss the major players that regulate light and temperature signalling, and the cross‐talk between them, in reference to a crucial developmental decision faced by plants: to bloom or not to bloom?
