Developmental stochasticity and variation in floral phyllotaxis

Miho Stephanie Kitazawa
2021 Journal of plant research  
Computer models have demonstrated that stochasticity in the phyllotactic pattern formation plays a role in pattern transitions and irregularities.  ...  What are the causes of the variability in floral phyllotaxis and how has the variation of floral phyllotaxis contributed to floral diversity?  ...  The modified ABC model is considered to be universally applicable for organ specification in angiosperm flowers, providing a fundamental framework for understanding floral development and evolution.  ...
