Flower development consists of several phases. The first step is the transition from vegetative to reproductive development, regulated by floral induction. Later steps include the initiation of individual flowers, the determination of organ identity, and organ-specific differentiation. One of the major discoveries of plant biology is that the genetic network controlling flower development is highly conserved in two distantly related dicots, Arabidopsis thaliana and Antirrhinum majus, and… CONTINUE READING
