14. A Genomics Approach To The Study Of Ancient Polyploidy and Floral Developmental Genetics
James H. Leebens-Mack, Kerr Wall, Jill Duarte, Zhengui Zheng, David Oppenheimer and Claude dePamphilis
Current major interests in this area include the study of higher level phylogenetic relationships and character evolution in the angiosperms, floral evolution, the genetic basis of key floral differences in basal angiosperms, the genetic and genomic consequences of polyploid speciation, conservation genetics of rare plant species, and phylogeography. Developmental Genetics of the Flower provides a series of papers focused on the developmental genetics of flowering as well as the genetic control of the timing of flowering. Investigation of speciational mechanisms, evolutionary relationships, and character evolution in flowering plants and land plants utilizing a variety of experimental approaches are discussed. The chapters are excellent reviews of the current fast-moving area of research.
- Provides a brief review of genes known to regulate flower development

Department of Botany University of Florida
Dr. Pamela S. Soltis is a Distinguished Professor and Curator in the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida. Prior to moving to Florida in 2000, she was Professor of Botany at Washington State University. She received her Ph.D. in 1986. Research interests include exploration of plant diversity, including reconstructing the tree of life; genome duplication (polyploidy); conservation. She has over 400 published papers and eight books. She served as president of the Society of Systematic Biologists (2004-07) and of the Botanical Society of America (2006-09). She was named a Distinguished Professor at the University of Florida in 2007. She has received the Centennial Award and the Distinguished Fellow Award from the Botanical Society of America. With Doug Soltis, she received the Dahlgren International Prize in Botany (2002), the Asa Gray Award in Plant Systematics (2006), and the Darwin-Wallace Medal from the Linnean Society of London (2016). With coauthors D. Soltis, P. Endress, and M. Chase, she received the Stebbins Medal in 2006 (for Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms). She was elected to the US National Academy of Sciences in 2016.
