About this book

Written in 1988 as a textbook mainly for undergraduates, the book explains the functioning and the evolution of plant structures. To be more understandable for students, it focuses on the most widely-accepted theories of structure and function. The more peripheral theories are mentioned only where they would help a student understand structure and function.

This text contains numerous diagrams, photographs, micrographs (both light and electron microscopy), but the emphasis is on light microscopy of the types of cells and tissues that an undergraduate student would see in their own plant anatomy labs. The book covers all tissues and organs of seed plants (all vegetative and reproductive organs) and tries to use familiar plants as examples.
