Integrating the Arabidopsis thaliana Flower Induction Pathways and Assessing the Extent to Which the Model Is Ubiquitous
Previous chapters discussed the different inhibitory and inductive pathways regulating flowering in Arabidopsis. An average Arabidopsis plant will experience inhibitory and promotive signals from each of these pathways to a greater or lesser extent. The first part of this chapter investigates how the pathways are brought together to result in a single response, through the activities of the flowering time integrator genes. The second section looks at the evidence that the same or similar pathways operate in other species, with particular emphasis on the short day plant rice, and Gregor Mendel's famous genetic model, the garden pea.
