Definitions for "Acclimation"
See adaptation.
Given a change of a single parameter, a readjustment of the physiology of an organism, reaching a new steady state.
phenotypic adaptation to environmental fluctuations; the gradual and reversible adjustment of physiology or morphology as a result of changing environmental conditions
Acclimation refers to wood being allowed to balance to an equilibrium moisture content with the surrounding environment. Unfinished wood floors should be allowed to acclimate to the target environment of the occupied building. This is performed by stacking the wood flooring with “stickers” of wood between the layers to expose all surfaces to the air. Prefinished floors arrive in cartons, and do not require acclimation outside the carton. It is still recommended you introduce the cartooned flooring to the jobsite a few days before installation.
Response by an animal that enables it to tolerate a change in a single factor (for example, temperature) in its environment.
adaptation to a new climate (a new temperature or altitude or environment)
The process of becoming, or the state of being, acclimated, or habituated to a new climate; acclimatization.
A program undertaken to induce acclimatization to new environmental conditions such as changes in temperature or altitude.
physiological change by an organism to environmental change
Adjustment to slowly changing new conditions. Compare threshold effect.
the process of slowly introducing a fish to new water conditions.
