Uncovering the genetic basis of natural variation of leaf form in Cardamine hirsuta

Abstract:

A major goal in biology is to understand the genetic basis of morphological variation at different evolutionary scales, for example between and within species. Here I investigate this issue by using plant leaves as an example. Previously comparative studies between the simple leaf model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and its dissected leaf relative Cardamine hirsuta have shown that inter-specific differences in leaf shape mostly result from variation in local tissue growth ...
