Botanists are a bit careless with the words that they may use to refer to the bunch of tiny flowers grouped at the center of a composite flower. Sometimes you will hear the word "disk" used or sometimes "head". If, however, you are making a presentation to a group of scientists, all of whom would love to make a fool of you, best to use the obscure "capitulum".
