Inhibitors are important to the survival of higher plants in temperate zones. These plants become dormant during harsh winter period or when conditions are not capable of supporting an active plant. Seeds often will not begin to germinate until they have been exposed to cold and then brought to moderate temperature. The breaking of dormancy and the beginning of growth depend on the release from inhibition of vigorous metabolic activity.
