Effect of environment and shoot architecture on floral transition and gene expression in Eucalyptus occidentalis and Metrosideros excelsa

Abstract

Metrosiderosexcelsa and Eucalyptus occidentalis exhibit different strategies prior to flowering—the former passes through a long juvenile phase and must acquire a degree of architectural complexity to flower, whereas the latter flowers precociously even on stems still exhibiting juvenile foliage. As expediting flowering is of interest to breeders and… (More)
