Re: [Histonet] Skeletal Histology Reference Books

From:"Hernan Aldana Marcos"

I have the wonderfull book the "Theory and Practice of Histological
Techniques" (Bancroft and Stevens- Churchill livingstone editorial) it has a
lot of techniques and simple explanations for connective tissue (Chap 8 and
16 (Chapter related to bone)).
Also another wonderfull book is  "The theory and Practice of Histotechnology
of Sheenan and Hrapchak (Mosby editorial)It also has a great chapter
dedicated to Connective and muscle fiber stains (Ch 10) and one perfect
chapter dedicated to bone, also inclueded decalcification techniques and
histomorphometry (Ch 6). Regrettably I dont know the Kiernan´s book
