In recent years, flower development has emerged as a model system for studying pattern formation in plants. Homeotic mutants with an altered pattern of floral organs have been found in many species. Recently, several of the floral homeotic genes have been isolated; and the mechanisms underlying pattern formation during flower development are beginning to be elucidated.
