PERSONALITIES IN SCIENCE Vladimir Ivanovich P’yankov: Phytophysiologist, Teacher, and Organizer of Science (1954–2002) About 50 million years ago, a collision between Laurasia and India resulted in drying off of the ancient Thetis Ocean. The Mediterranean, Black, Caspian, and Aral seas and Lake Baikal are the relics of this ocean. This collision brought about the global aridization of the young continent of Eurasia and its shift toward the circumpolar region, which caused hardships to the veg- etation of the moderate climate of Laurasia. The note of physiology vividly sounded in P’yankov’s research on the evolution of Chenopodiaceae. In this research, he revealed the nature of the adaptation potential of C plants competing for colonization of young extraarid Turan deserts. P’yankov was the first to overcome the paradigm of the primary importance of adaptation of the C type of photosynthesis at cellular and subcellular levels and to move to the tissue and organ levels of adaptation of the photosynthetic apparatus. He noted the trend of reverse http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
