Since plants are sessile they must be able to sense and rapidly respond to changes in ambient temperature. Key aspects of plant development, including the transition to flowering and the circadian clock, have important inputs from ambient temperature. In the model system Arabidopsis thaliana, molecular candidates for mediating these roles have recently been uncovered, which will be critical for obtaining an understanding of the mechanisms involved.
