The rapid advances in elucidating the biosynthesis and mode of action of the plant hormone ethylene, as well as its involvement in the regulation of the whole plant physiology, made imperative the organization of a series of dedicated conferences. This volume contains the main lectures and poster contributions presented at the 7th International Symposium on the Plant Hormone Ethylene held in Pisa in 2006.
