Recent studies on AGAMOUS-LIKE2-, DEFICIENS- and GLOBOSA-like MADS-box genes in diverse seed plant species have provided novel insights into the mechanisms by which the identity of the different floral organs is specified during flower development. These advances in understanding may lead to major refinements in the classical ABC model of floral organ identity.
