In order to study physiological responses to the island plant  Cinnamomum japonicum under low temperature stress, the relative electric conductivity, the content of MDA and the activity of CAT were determined under different low temperature treatments for the leaves of Cjaponicum in winter. The results showed that the relative electric conductivity increased, MDA content also increased, CAT showed “M”type changes trend with decreasing temperature.

Key words: Cinnamomum japonicum, Cold-resistance, Relative electric conductivity, MDA, CAT
