Abstract

Transposable elements are ubiquitous in the plant kingdom and share many common features, both structural and mechanistic, with mobile elements from other eukaryotes. Transposition of these elements can influence plant genes and genomes in many ways. It is also becoming clear that transposable element derived sequences can be a major component of plant genomes. These sequences are probably, therefore, very significant factors in plant evolution.
