Floral evolution and development

Margarita Remizowa studies plant structure, especially the arrangement and development of plant reproductive organs. Her research focuses on comparative evolutionary and developmental floral morphology (including anatomy and embryology) of a range of plant groups, preferrably monocots. It bases on empirical studies on particular systematic and morphological problems that are placed in a developmental-genetic and phylogenetic context. Her work contributes to understanding the evolution of plant form, especially the organization of flowers in the aim to explore how the flowers perform their function from their inception to fruit ripening. In general, Margarita Remizowa (together with her colleagues) try to solve one of the most crucial problems of evolutionary biology: understanding the relationship between molecular and morphological evolution with respect to flowers and inflorescences. The ultimate goal is to understand the developmental constraints governing evolution of floral structure. Margarita Remizowa published more than 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, she collaborates with other specialists in plant morphology, paleobotany, plant genetics and virology.
