Plant meiosis: the means to 1N.

Abstract:

Meiosis is pivotal in the life history of plants. In addition to providing an opportunity for genetic reassortment, it marks the transition from diploid sporophyte to haploid gametophyte. Recent molecular data suggest that, like animals, plants possess a common set of genes (also conserved in eukaryotic microorganisms) responsible for meiotic recombination and chromosome segregation. However, unlike animals, plant meiocytes do not differentiate from a pool of primordial germ cells, but rather...
