I would like to thank Dr. Martin Yanofsky for granting permission to use the images of Arabidopsis floral development mutants and schematic diagrams that describe the genetic interactions. His publication "Floral Meristems to Floral Organs:Genes Controlling Early Events in Arabidopsis Flower Development" (Annu. Rev. Plant Physiol. Plant Mol. Biol. 1995 46:167) was also helpful in the development of this section of the course.
