Gymnosperms are generally regarded as poor resprouters, especially when compared to angiosperms and particularly following major disturbance. However, is it this clear-cut? This review investigates two main aspects of gymnosperm resprouting: (i) various papers have provided exceptions to the above generalization—how frequent are these exceptions an...

Axillary meristems (AMs) contribute to the growth of a plant, determining adult architecture and reproductive success in response to environmental stimuli. The missing flowers (mf) mutant of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is defective in AM development. mf lacks shoot branching and ray flowers, occasionally producing few disk flowers. Here we demons...

Shoot branching is a major determinant of plant architecture. Genetic variants for reduced stem branching in the axils of cauline leaves of Arabidopsis were found in some natural accessions and also at low frequency in the progeny of multiparent crosses. Detailed genetic analysis using segregating populations derived from backcrosses with the paren...

Axillary meristems allow the production of secondary growth axes in the shoot systems of plants. As such they make a large contribution to the plastic developmental potential of plants, allowing them to alter their architecture to suit the prevailing environment conditions. This review focuses on the formation and activity of axillary meristems, ac...
