Shaping the shoot: the relative contribution of cell number and cell shape to variations in internode length between parent and hybrid apple trees.


Genetic control of plant size and shape is a promising perspective, particularly in fruit trees, in order to select desirable genotypes. A recent study on architectural traits in an apple progeny showed that internode length was a highly heritable character. However, few studies have been devoted to internode cellular patterning in dicotyledonous stems, and… (More)
