This textbook presents classical plant development in modern, molecular-genetic terms. Plant development is rapidly changing as genome sequencing projects uncover a multitude of new genes. This book provides a framework for integrating gene discovery and genome analysis into the context of plant development. Taking a systems approach, concepts in plant development are compared with those in animal development, and complex processes, such as flowering and photomorphogenesis, are presented as pathways of gene action regulated by positional and environmental cues. Examples are drawn primarily from model plants with well-studied genetic systems, particularly Arabidopsis and maize.
