Flowers do it, trees do it: Symposium on plant reproduction
Date:7/15/2010

Montreal, July 15, 2010 Want to know how plants grow, reproduce and communicate? Hundreds of international plant experts, from leading institutions such as Berkeley and Cornell to McGill and the University of Montreal, are gathering to review the latest research on all things green: Plant Biology 2010. Media are welcome to attend the gathering:

Sexual life of plants: Several researchers from the University

of Montreal Department of Biological Sciences and its affiliated Montreal Biodiversity Centre and Institut de recherche en biologie vgtale, will present research. Professor Anja Geitmann will review how the carrier of sperm cells, the pollen tube, reaches its targeted egg cell during fertilization in flowering plants; Professor Daniel Philippe Matton will review the complex signals that guide the pollen tube in its journey toward the plant ovule to effect fertilization and produce seed and fruit; Professor Jean Rivoal will discuss how a novel antioxidant enzyme in plants is regulated by biotic and environmental stress.

Research associate Sonia Dorion will present on novel mechanisms involved in the control of carbohydrate metabolism in roots; PhD student Evgenia Auslender will discuss how plant cells cope with iron deficiency; PhD students Rabah Zerzour and Firas Bou Daher will present a talks on the mechanisms by which pollen tubes perceive mechanical signals and respond. Finally, researcher Frdric Pitre will deliver a talk on educational outreach at the Montreal Biodiversity Centre.
