Abstract

Several different lines of inquiry have converged on the conclusion that the number and plane of cell divisions is under tight control in plant development. At the same time, there are new data which show that the pattern of cell division is less important in the formation of organ-scale plant patterns than was expected previously. This apparent paradox can be resolved by recognizing the role of cell-cell communication in the control of plant cell-division patterns.
