plant histology

From:Louise Hecker <>

I am a histologist at Binghamton University.  I have a student that is
interested in doing some basic histology on soft plant leaves.  She would
eventually like to do some histochemistry.  My experience in histology has
only been with animals.  Does anyone have a very general protocol for
plants?  Such as: what fixatives to use, how to process the tissue, how to
infiltrate properly, etc.  Any information would be useful. thanks,
Louise Hecker
