IN MEMORIAM The Contribution of Lev Konstantinovich Kaipiainen (1937–2004) to the Studies of Plant Water Regime and Productivity by N. Wiener, L. Von Bertalanﬁ, I. Schmalhauzen, N. Timofeeff-Ressovsky, and others. It was during this period that Kaipiainen developed his unswerving atti- tude to living organisms as self-organizing systems deﬁned by speciﬁc structural and temporal characteris- tics. When studied on micro- and macrolevels, as the biochemical processes (enzyme reactions) or the phys- iological processes maintained by whole plants and animals, most life manifestations are seen as periodic patterns; they are organized and regulated by a rhythm bringing together variation and stability and unifying the separate processes. As an experimenting physicist, Kaipiainen foresaw that the modern techniques of physics and electronics would help solve many prob- lems of the research into living systems. It would be difﬁcult to predict the ﬁnal outcome of such a theoretical quest; however, an accidental change of life trajectory helped Kaipiainen establish his own niche in plant physiology. Having followed his teacher Prof. Yu.S.
