Although a majority of monocotyledons have simple leaves, pinnately or palmately dissected blades are found in four orders, the Alismatales, Pandanales, Dioscoreales and Arecales. Independent evolutionary origins of leaf dissection are indicated by phylogenetic analyses and are reflected in the diversity of mechanisms employed during leaf development. The mechanism of blastozone fractionation through localized enhancement and suppression of growth of the free margin of the leaf primordium occurs in the Araceae and Dioscoreaceae. By contrast, the corrugated, dissected leaves of palms (Arecaceae) develop through a two-step process: first, plications are formed through intercalary growth in a submarginal position and, second, the initially simple leaf blade is dissected through an abscission-like process of leaflet separation. A third mechanism, perforation formation, is employed in Monstera and five related genera of the Araceae. In this mode, discrete patches of cells undergo programmed cell death during lamina development, resulting in formation of open perforations. When perforations are positioned near the leaf margin, mechanical disruption of the thin bridges of marginal tissue results in a deeply pinnatisect blade. Whereas blastozone fractionation defines the early primary morphogenesis phase of leaf development, the other two modes occur later, during the secondary morphogenesis/histogenesis phase. Evolution of these mechanisms presumably has involved recruitment of other developmental programmes into the development of dissected leaves. © 2006 The Linnean Society of London, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, 2006, 150, 25–44.
