Floral development is an important discipline within plant morphology, which in turn is the oldest botanical discipline. Recent achievements in molecular phylogeny, physiology and ecology have recalled the importance of floral development. To evaluate its contemporary relevance, we organized the JPR (Journal of Plant Research) symposium about the floral development. This symposium was co-organized by the Japanese Society of Plant Morphology and Fundación Flores (Chile).
