Grass inflorescences are diverse, developmentally complex, and provide many of the taxonomic characters used to diVerentiate the estimated 10,000 grass species. Here we review grass inflorescence development in detail and discuss which genes are involved at each developmental stage. We demonstrate that grass inflorescence development is complex, with multiple structures that are not present in Arabidopsis. New and published phylogenetic analyses of genes involved at each developmental stage… CONTINUE READING
