Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most important crops in the word. Because the wheat floral organs provided the basis for grain formation, study of wheat floral development is important for improve wheat yield potential. In recent years, notable progress has been made in study of molecular floral development in wheat. In this review, we summarized the ‘ABC’ model and discussed the role of A-, B-, C-, D-, E-class genes in the development and evolution of wheat flowers and inflorescence.
