Plant development: YODA the stomatal switch

J E Gray, A M Hetherington

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial (Academic Journal)peer-review


The appearance of stomatal pores during plant evolution is believed to have been a crucial step in land colonisation. A recent screen for genes involved in stomatal development has identified for the first time a mutant plant with no stomata; the results implicate a MAP kinase cascade in stomatal development.
