About the cover: The edible curd of Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.) comes in different colors. In addition to the nutrients in white cauliflower, the orange one accumulates carotene, the green one accumulates chlorophylls, and the purple one accumulates anthocyanins. It is of high interest to figure out how different pigments are synthesized, and how these metabolic pathways are regulated in the floral meristematic tissues.
