A review article on leaf development, focusing on metabolism and biomechanics and how they relate to phenotypic plasticity and leaf morphological diversity found in nature, has been published in the Journal of Cell Science. The review was written by Drs., Hokuto Nakayama, Hiroyuki Koga, Ali Ferjani (Tokyo Gakugei University), Yuchen Long (The National University of Singapore), and Olivier Hamant (INRAE).
