This easy-to-follow, full-colour guide was created for instructors teaching plant structure at the high school, college, and university levels. It benefits from the experience of the authors, who in teaching plant anatomy over many years, came to realize that students learn best by preparing their own microscope slides from fresh plant samples. The exercises contained in this book have been tested, require minimal supplies and equipment, and use plants that are readily available. Detailed instructions are given for sectioning and staining of plant material. The book contains a glossary of terms, an index, and a list of suppliers of materials required.
Please note that this book was originally published as a spiralbound book with an accompanying CD-ROM with all the illustrations included. After the original print run was exhausted the publisher has switched to print-on-demand paperback that no longer include this CD-ROM.
