Plant development is a biphasic process. Pattern formation during embryogenesis generates a basic body organisation, including self-maintaining stem-cell systems called meristems at opposite ends of the main axis of polarity. During post-embryonic development, the meristems produce new organs with reference to the existing body, transforming the juvenile seedling into the species-specific adult plant. Studies in Arabidopsis indicate that patterning in plants involves not only cell surface… CONTINUE READING
