Molecules to Morphology: Developing an Understanding of Plant Evolution Through Time

Rothwell, Gar W. [1], Wyatt, Sarah [2].

Molecules to Morphology: Introduction.

Paleobotany provides a framework for evolutionary change through geological time. Molecular biology provides genetic mechanism for evolutionary change. Together, these seemingly disparate disciplines reveal how gene function and developmental regulation have effected morphological innovations and organismal evolution over geological time. This symposium will show how advances in genetic regulation form the basis for changes in the morphology of living organisms, how these advances can provide structural "fingerprints" for regulatory mechanisms that can be identified from the fossil record, and how the two can be integrated to infer the evolution of land plants.
