Abstract

The initial emphasis in molecular-genetic studies of flower development was on homeotic genes that control organ identity, which is rather invariant between different species. Studies in flower development during the past three years have dealt with more diverse aspects of flower development, including floral induction and floral shape. Genes identified in the respective pathways might hold clues to the diversity of modern angiosperms.
