Plants are carrying a double historicity: firstly because of their life history (evolution, reproductive cycle, etc.), on the other hand because of their human history (botanical studies, selection, cultural practices, uses, etc.). This intrinsic historic character based interdisciplinary approaches that take into account both the biological history of human history plants.
These two day workshop will be conducive to trade on the analysis of interdisciplinarity at work in research that cross the historical approach and the experimental plant sciences (genetics, physiology, pathology, systematic study evolution, etc.). Indeed, they develop a complex interaction between these disciplines and raise methodological and epistemological questions.
