Abstract

For centuries, humans have grown and used structures, based on vascular tissues in plants. One could imagine that life would have developed differently without wood as a resource for building material, paper, heating energy or fuel and without edible tubers as a food source. In this review, we will summarise the status of research on Arabidopsis thaliana vascular development and subsequently focus on how this knowledge has been applied and expanded in research on the wood of trees and storage organs of crop plants. We will conclude with an outlook on interesting open questions and exciting new research opportunities in this growing and important field.
