Acclimatization is the process of physiological adaptation by animals or plants due to changes in climatic or environmental conditions.
The process of adjustment of cells or organisms in new environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, photoperiod, and other climatic conditions is called Acclimatization. In order to sustain themselves, during this process, organisms tend to adjust their morphological and biochemical properties in response to new environmental conditions. Depending on the natural characteristics and types of adaptation, the time taken for Acclimatization shows a lot of variation in different organisms ranging from hours to months in some to over a lifetime in others.
Acclimatization is a well-coordinated phenotypic response against environmental stresses that gradually diminishes or lessens relatively upon removal of stressors. Acclimatization occurs in two different...
