Integrates molecular genetics with comparative morphology to give a comprehensive view of the evolution of plant development.To date, research into the evolutionary development of plants has largely focused on genetics. Minelli suggests a novel approach, integrating data from different research traditions. This is the first comprehensive book on the evolution of plant development and will be of interest to students, lecturers and researchers in the field.To date, research into the evolutionary development of plants has largely focused on genetics. Minelli suggests a novel approach, integrating data from different research traditions. This is the first comprehensive book on the evolution of plant development and will be of interest to students, lecturers and researchers in the field.Compared to animals, plants have been largely neglected in evolutionary developmental biology. Mainstream research has focused on developmental genetics, while a rich body of knowledge in comparative morphology is still to be exploited. No integrated account is available. In this volume, Minelli fills this gap using the same approach he gave to animals, revisiting traditional concepts and providing an articulated analysis of genetic and molecular data. Topics covered include leaf complexity and the evolution of flower organs, handedness, branching patterns, flower symmetry and synorganization, and less conventional topics such as fractal patterns of plant organization. Also discussed is the hitherto neglected topic of the evolvability of temporal phenotypes like a plant's annual, biennial or perennial life cycle, flowering time and the timing of abscission of flower organs. This will be informative reading for anyone in the field of plant evo-devo, from students to lecturers and researchers.Preface; 1. Introducing plant evo-devo; 2. The plant phenospace; 3. Tools; 4.
