About this book

This revision of the now classic Plant Anatomy offers a completely updated review of the structure, function, and development of meristems, cells, and tissues of the plant body. The text follows a logical structure-based organization. Beginning with a general overview, chapters then cover the protoplast, cell wall, and meristems, through to phloem, periderm, and secretory structures.

Media reviews
Like its predecessors, 'Esau's Plant Anatomy' will serve as an important reference for students and botanists who need basic information on this subject. Summing up: Essential. (CHOICE, March 2007) "...will probably become the standard in the field...a breadth of pictorial documentation often not achievable by a single author...a sound contribution to the plant anatomy reference and instructional textbooks available today." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2007) "...few more iconic texts in botany than Esau's Plant Anatomy... this edition is a very worthy successor to previous editions..." (Annals of Botany, June 2007) "...provides an easily accessible and excellent source of basic information on plant anatomy which is nowadays more important than ever." (J. Phytopathology, 155, 574-576, 2007)
