Plant anatomy; an applied approach. (CD-ROM included)
Cutler, David F. et al.
Cutler, president of the Linnean Society of London, provides an overview of all aspects of plant anatomy, emphasizing the application of plant anatomy and its relevance to modern botanical research. Coverage progresses from morphology and tissue systems through roots, leaves, stems, seeds, adaptive features of plants, and economic aspects of applied plant anatomy. A final chapter is devoted to simple techniques for the preparation of non-permanent and permanent slides. The book is illustrated with a wealth of b&w photos, drawings, and images. Accompanying the text is a CD-ROM, The Virtual Plant, containing photographs and scanning electron microscope images, illustrated instructions on the use of the light microscope, and laboratory exercises. The book can be used as a reference for undergraduates taking courses in plant anatomy, applied plant anatomy, and plant biology, and for researchers and postgraduates in plant sciences.
