Conference paper


March 21, 2002, marked the 100th birthday of Mikhail Khristoforovich Chailakhyan (1902-2002). M. Kh. Chailakhyan was a well-known scientist in the field of hormonal regulation of plant growth and development. His research activity extended more than sixty years and included a wide range of problems devoted to fundamental aspects of plant ontogeny. His works included investigations of the mechanisms of flowering, tuberization, sex expression, and the integrity of the plant organism. He published more than four hundred papers and monographs. In this short report it is impossible to cover all of his works, so here only some of the most characteristic trends of his investigations will be described.
