Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Origin and Diversification of the Angiosperm Flower

  title={Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Origin and Diversification of the Angiosperm Flower},
  author={F Jena},
† Background Understanding the mode and mechanisms of the evolution of the angiosperm flower is a long-standing and central problem of evolutionary biology and botany. It has essentially remained unsolved, however. In contrast, considerable progress has recently been made in our understanding of the genetic basis of flower development in some extant model species. The knowledge that accumulated this way has been pulled together in two major hypotheses, termed the ‘ABC model’ and the ‘floral… CONTINUE READING
