Frontiers of Sexual Plant Reproduction III scientific research conference will be held in Tucson, Arizona on October 17-19, 2008 in the Tucson Marriott University Park.

Previous meetings in this series, FSPR I (2000) and FSPR II (2004), were held in SUNY, Albany to review progress, discuss challenges, debate strategies and devise effective solutions for various unanswered questions in the field of plant reproductive biology.

As a follow up to these highly successful meetings, we are pleased to organize FSPR III in 2008 to serve as an international forum to review and discuss the state of the art in the plant sexual reproduction research, from multiple viewpoints: classical plant physiology, molecular biology, evolution, cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, functional genomics and proteomics.

We look forward to seeing you in Tucson in October 2008 for an exciting scientific meeting on plant reproduction.
