Abstract

Recent papers have explored early events in the development of simple leaves. Functional compartmentalization of the shoot apical meristem correlates with distinct fields of cells connected by plasmodesmata. Molecules important in the initiation of phyllotactic pattern are described and the relationship between dorsoventral patterning and lateral leaf expansion is investigated.
