Current perspectives on the hormonal control of seed development in Arabidopsis and maize: a focus on auxin.
Rights accessOpen Access
The seed represents the unit of reproduction of flowering plants, capable of developing into another plant, and to ensure the survival of the species under unfavorable environmental conditions. It is composed of three compartments: seed coat, endosperm and embryo. Proper seed development depends on the coordination of the processes that lead to seed compartments differentiation, development and maturation.
