Understanding the developmental patterns and factors that control expansion of vegetative and reproductive organs is of fundamental importance for refining conservation protocols for rare plants. For example, the period of vulnerability to arthropod

because of natural low temperature, which marked the shift from vegetative growth stage to the reproductive growth stage (when growth was mainly that of reproductive organs). The flowers (including unopened floral buds) and stalks were sampled at Weeks 16

CiAG is similar to PTAG from poplar ( Brunner et al., 2000 ). It is reported that the AG -lineage genes are generally expressed in reproductive organs, not in the vegetative organs ( Chaidamsari et al., 2006 ; Wu et al., 2004 ; Yanofsky et al

PmSOC1 -like genes were high in the leaf buds, flower buds, stems, and leaves, but relatively low in the reproductive organs ( Fig. 2 ). In 1-month-old seedlings, PmSOC1-1 and PmSOC1-3 were expressed in roots, stems, and leaves, whereas PmSOC1

). Fruit trees can be considered as a collection of individual sinks (reproductive and vegetative) that compete with each other ( DeJong, 1999 ; Wright, 1989 ). The sink demand of an organ and its competitive ability to attract assimilates varies by
