Plant Histology

Hello everyone !

One of our customers (an agriculture engineer)  wants to take tree
sections. They are
investigating tree grafts like roses, & willows. They want to take 4-5
micron sections and they don't know anything about
processing of plant tissues.  I am not familiar with plant processing
either and was wondering if anyone out there could enlighten me
on the topic of plant processing, processing schedules and anything
different one would need to have when performing embedding,
microtomy and staining. Is there a book specifically designated to plant
processing , microtomy & staining ? One more thing is what
can be used to decompose cellulose?

Your  help as always is greatly appreciated !


Best regards,
