Most flowering plants are hermaphroditic, having flowers with both male and female parts. Less than 4% of plant species are dioecious (with individuals of separate sexes), and many of these species have chromosome-mediated sex determination. The taxonomic distribution of separate sexes and chromosomal sex-determination systems in the flowering plants indicates that plant sex chromosomes have evolved recently through replicated, independent events, contrasting with the ancient origins of… CONTINUE READING
