We introduce the notion of α-parabolic quasi-concavity for functions of space and time, which extends the usual notion of quasi-concavity and the notion of parabolic quasi-cocavity introduced in [18]. Then we investigate the α-parabolic quasi-concavity of solutions to parabolic problems with vanishing initial datum. The results here obtained are generalizations of some of the results of [18].
