Abstract Detail

Experimental Morphology and Morphogenesis Then and Now: A Symposium in Memory of Elizabeth G. Cutter

Sussex, Ian [1].

Experimental Plant Morphogenesis: Where did it come from, what did it do, and where did it go?

Experimental morphogenesis studies began in Germany in the late 19th century when animal embryologists disrupted early embryo development by needle punctures or cell separations. American and British botanists who had studied in European labs brought the technologies home. They disrupted plant development by meristem dissections and punctures, leaf punctures and in vitro studies.When these technologies failed to yield new results, attention turned to model plant systems in which mutant generation and molecular analysis of the underlying genetic pathways provided deeper understanding.
