Fruits represent a key innovation of the flowering plants that facilitates seed dispersal. In many species of the plant family Brassicaceae dehiscent fruits develop in which seed dispersal occurs through a process termed 'pod-shatter'. In the case of dehiscence, the fruit opens during fruit maturation. Phylogeny reconstructions using molecular markers indicate that the development of dehiscent fruits is the ancestral condition within the genus Lepidium s.l., but that indehiscent fruits evolved… CONTINUE READING
