The seasonal dynmics of water-soluble substances and water content in the meristematic tissues of vegetative buds of Picea obovata L. and Pinus slvestris L. are considered. Changes of the concentrations of cytoplasmic solutions of meristematic cells under their dehydration as a result of extracellular or extra-organ ice formation were determined. It was discovered that the concentration of water-soluble substances of the cytoplasm can increase by a factor of 2-2.5 with a decrease in temperature in the negative range down to -40 as a result of water crystallization. A connection between the cellular content of water able to get crystallized, unfreezing water and the concentration of water-soluble substances under temperature decrease from 0 to -40 C was established.
