In earlier work (Grimes, 1992) on inflorescence morphology in the mimosoid tribes Ingeae and Acacieae I proposed that differences in inflorescence morphology result from three properties: the organization of components of the inflorescence and their relative positions; the hierarchical arrangement of the axes of the inflorescence and the position they assume in total tree architecture; and the heterochronic development of components of the inflorescence. Further work shows that the first two… CONTINUE READING
