Sexual reproduction in animals and plants share common elements, but little was known about how the sex of plants is determined until University of Tasmania researchers discovered a gene responsible. The research highlights the extraordinary effect that a plant hormone - abcisic acid, or ABA - which originally evolved to control sex, has had on land plant evolution and ecology over the past million years. Since the dawn of land plants, ABA has played a critical role in regulating plant responses to water availability.
