Ovules are the direct precursors of seeds and thus play central roles in sexual plant reproduction and human nutrition. Extensive classical studies have elucidated the evolutionary trends and developmental processes responsible for the current wide variety of ovule morphologies. Recently, ovules have been perceived as an attractive system for the study of genetic regulation of plant development. More than a dozen regulatory genes have now been identified through isolation of ovule mutants… CONTINUE READING
