Plant growth and development are driven by the continuous generation of new cells. Whereas much has been learned at a molecular level about the mechanisms that orchestrate progression through the different cell-cycle phases, little is known about how the cell-cycle machinery operates in the context of an entire plant and contributes to growth, cell differentiation and the formation of new tissues and organs. Here, we discuss how intrinsic developmental signals and environmental cues affect cell-cycle entry and exit.
