Abstract Plant development relies on the activity of meristems, small groups of undifferentiated cells that produce all organs. The first meristems are formed in the embryo, and all subsequent development depends on their proper establishment, making embryonic meristem initiation a key step in plant life. The founder cells of the embryonic meristems are specified early in embryo development after the establishment of the body axis. Initiation of the root meristem in the early embryo is marked by the specification of a single cell, the hypophysis, and hence an attractive model to study meristem initiation. In this review, we will discuss the mechanisms that control embryo axis formation and root meristem initiation
