  • Dear Colleagues,

    We wish to kindly invite you to take part in the International conference "Structural and functional deviations from normal growth and development of plants under the influence of environmental factors" on 20-24 June, 2011 to be held in Petrozavodsk (Russia).
    Scientific School of Young Scientists "Biology of development abnormalities in plants" will be organized in frames of the Conference.
    The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2011 as the International Year of Forests. In this regard, significant attention at the Conference will be given to growth and development of woody plants, including cambial growth abnormalities of deciduous and coniferous tree species.
    During the ontogeny a deviations from normal growth and development of plant can be rather essential. Recent advances in molecular biology allow to give a new look at the problem of effect of changed parental phenotype on offsprings phenotype. This problem will be one of the questions for discussion on the Scientific School.

  • Problems to be discussed:
  • 1) Biochemical, functional, anatomo-morphological and habitus deviations from normal growth and development of plants in reply to influence of environmental factors.
    2) Molecular biology, biochemical and physiological mechanisms of induction of structural abnormalities.
    3) The problem of modifications inheritance. Genetic, physiological, morphological aspects of ecological aftereffects.

    We look forward to meet you in Petrozavodsk.
