SUMMARY

       Signaling pathways underpin development in higher plants. Many
studies have revealed that seemingly independent signaling pathways
interact with each other, as in the case of responses to cytokinins,
ethylene and light, or intersect as in the case of regulation of flowering
by both photoperiod and giberrellins. This meeting will focus on recent
results from cell biological and molecular genetic approaches which
emphasize the role played by such interactions and intersections between
different pathways in plant development, as well as in plant responses to
environmental stresses and pathogens. A number of different topics will be
covered, including interactions between pathways mediating responses to
hormonal and environmental cues, developmental programs that require the
transduction of signals through two or more distinct pathways for
initiation, and the relationships of pathways involved in normal plant
development to those involved in disease resistance.
