Plants display a wide capacity range to survive cold and freezing conditions. Indeed, they are able to sense low, non-freezing temperatures and activate processes that lead to an increase in freezing tolerance, a phenomenon known as cold acclimation (CA). Metabolome analysis not only improves the recognition of the complex interactive nature of plant metabolic networks and their responses to environmental changes but also provides valuable information about plant abiotic stress resistance. Metabolomics is still an evolving field and has not reached adequate development, routine and coverage, such as other “omics” technologies. Volatilomics, a recently born “omics” science which allows to analyse the volatile component of the metabolome, has received considerable attention in abiotic stress studies. However, the integration of “omics” technologies is faced with some limitations, and, subsequently, of …
