Presents the basic concepts and terminology of plant anatomy with a special emphasis on its significance and applications to other disciplines such as plant breeding, forensic analysis, medicine, food science, wood and fibre products, and the arts. 'A splendid integration of the diverse aspects of plant anatomy' TAXON
This is an ambitious and scholarly text, and Dr. Dickison should be congratulated for his efforts. Thomas L. Rost, University of California at Davis "I commend the author for his fresh and novel approach to the study of plant anatomy. Presently, there is no textbook available that interrelates plant anatomy with systematics, physiology, ecology, genetics, anthropology, and the other fields of study covered in the manuscript; this approach has merit and addresses a need as far as plant anatomy and its applications are concerned." Terence W. Lucansky, University of Florida "The author is completely successful in fulfilling his objective of conveying the importance of plant anatomy as a field of endeavor with widespread applications to other fields. Dickison's approach is refreshingly different and likely to have great appeal to the novice... For example, the manuscript was easy to read, unlike most [plant] anatomy books, because of minimal use of technical jargon." Dale M.J. Mueller, Texas A&M University
