The past year has seen major advances in our understanding of the mechanisms through which leaf pattern is elaborated. It has been suggested that developmental subcompartments are delimited within the leaf and that homeobox genes are involved in specifying these domains in compound leaves. Importantly, peptide signaling has emerged as a novel component of leaf developmental pathways.
