"His text is a very readable treatment of developmental plant anatomy that highlights the excitement of the field today. A particular strength of this text is that it identifies current controversy, and presents counter arguments from different schools of thought, documenting these issues with an extensive list of references and further readings at the end of each chapter...It will provide them with the basic background of traditional descriptive anatomy yet excite them with the power of the modern techniques currently being employed in the field."
Marshall D. Sundber, Plant Science Bulletin
Provides a comprehensive introduction to plant anatomy incorporating basic knowledge with information and ideas about the development of plant structure and form. Unlike many other plant anatomy textbooks, the 18 chapters incorporate information from the latest research in cellular and molecular biology as related to plant development. Designed for undergraduate and graduate students with a basic knowledge of plant science, the book is richly illustrated with numerous line drawings and photographs to aid students' understanding. In addition there is a comprehensive glossary and extensive bibliographies for further reading.
