Types of Plant Variegation.

Plants express a wide range of variegation, or colored patterns, in leaves flowers and fruits. Eight types of variegation are tentatively recognized and they are spots, zones, chimeras, clones, tessellation, reticulation, stripes and major vein coloration. Each can be uniquely identified along with its developmental origin. Whether the mechanisms underlying these patterns are similar to those for basic ontogenetic events will be discussed.
