Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Book Description

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.

Great overview of plant structure and anatomy but I can't help but give 4 stars due to Cambridge Press' lack of pictorial imagination!

This book saves my life on a regular basis.
Simple, straightforward but detailed explanations of developmental processes. Barebones illustrations, much of them black and white or line drawings keep it simple. If you want amazing color images you can always google them. This book packs in a lot of information in a clear, concise way and the index is very well organized.

This book is written in very complex technical language, absolutely not suitable for anyone outside the field. The author does not bother to write summaries, generalizations or simplifications. Literally hundreds of micrographs are a minimal aid in gaining an understanding of the subject. If you want to learn all the technical terms, this book is for you. If you don't, buy another book.

Feels like it is written for an undergraduate/young graduate audience, but can be used as a reference by all.
