Johannes van Staden was awarded his PhD (Botany) in 1970 and lectured in this field until 2003. He is a Professor and Director of the Research Institute for Plant Growth and Development, School of Biological and Conservation Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa). His main interests are in the hormonal regulation of plant growth, seed germination, plant tissue culture and ethnobotany/medicine.

Igor E Moshkov is a Leading Researcher in plant physiology and biochemistry and Deputy Director at the Timiryazev Institute of Plant Physiology, Russian Academy of Science, Moscow. His research is focussed on ethylene signal perception and transduction, the interaction between ethylene and cytokinin at the level of hormone perception and signal transduction pathways and GTP-binding proteins in phytohormone signalling.
Galina V Novikova is a Leading Researcher in plant physiology and biochemistry at the Timiryazev Institute of Plant Physiology, Russian Academy of Science, Moscow. Her research is related to the mode of action of phytohormone action (cytokinins and ethylene) and interactions of the phytohormones, protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation in relation to phytohormone signal perception and transduction and MAPK cascades in phytohormone signal transduction.
Michael A Hall has been Professor of Botany at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth (UK) since 1981. His research is involved with signal perception and transduction mechanisms for plant hormones, especially ethylene, as well as the role of hormones in the responses of plants to environmental stress.
