About this book

Preparing Plant Tissue for Light Microscopic Study's emphasis is the gathering of microscopic data from plant tissues in ways that do not require elaborate and dedicated equipment. The approximately 200 formulas or procedures in Preparing Plant Tissue for Light Microscopic Study are gathered from numerous and scattered resources. The author has tried many of them and have added a few personal inventions. While some techniques would benefit from access to a microtome, oven, hood, or warming tray, many data yielding preparations can be made with nothing more elaborate than a desk top, a razor blade, and some miscellaneous supplies. Access to a clinical or research grade microscope is assumed. Over many years of teaching plant anatomy, the author came to realize that students are especially intrigued by plant structures if they are given a chance to manipulate the tissues themselves. Preparing Plant Tissue for Light Microscopic Study was written with that in mind. The techniques will be of use to teachers at the college or secondary school levels, as well as anyone with a background in plant structure.
