- ... Owing to their sessile habits and trophic position within global ecosystems, higher plants display a sundry assortment of adaptations to the threat of predation. Unlike animals, nearly all higher plants can replace reproductive structures lost to predators by activating reserved growing points called axillary meristems. As the first step in a program aimed at defining the genetic architecture of t ...
