The Organizing Committee announces that the 10th Workshop on Theoretical
Plant Morphology with the main theme "The Organ Identity in Plant
Morphology" will be held on May 2-8, 2004 in the Faculty of Natural and
Geo-Sciences, Viatka State University of Human Sciences (Kirov, Russia).

Topics for discussion on the workshop:
1.      What is an organ? Is it a part of the whole, a fragment of the body,
2.      Morphological, physiological, and genetic criteria of an identity of
plant organs.
3.      Modes of the plant construction: tissues, modules, architectural
models, life forms.
4.      Are root, axis and leaf real or fictitious?
5.      Are flowers, inflorescences real or fictitious?
6.      The role of theoretical plant morphology in higher biological

Working languages are Russian and English. Lectures with detailed
discussions, round tables, and poster session are proposed.

After the workshop, we are planning a guided tour to Medvedski Bor, a pine
forest on the left bank of Viatka river. This unique landscape with karst
lakes and relic dunes houses a lot of rare nemoral and steppe plants.
