The morphology of most extant land plant species is generated through the production of leaves in ordered patterns from shoot apical meristems. However, primitive plants had neither organized meristems nor leaves. Using a combination of lineage analysis, live cell imaging and mutagenesis, we are elucidating how shoot development occurs in a range of plants. Recent data will be presented and will be discussed in the context of how developmental mechanisms evolved to elaborate different plant forms.
