Re: Plant Histology
There are at least two good books on plant
1. Berlyn GP & Miksche JP 1976. Botanical Microtechnique
and Cytochemistry. Ames: Iowa State Univ. Press.
Hardback, 326 pages. This is excellent; obtainable
from the publisher at a remarkably low price.
One of the authors is Prof of Wood Anatomy at Yale.
2. Ruzin SE 1999. Plant Microtechnique and Microscopy
New York: Oxford Univ. Press. Paperback, 322 big
pages. Contains information on immunohistochemistry
and nucleic acid hybridization that's not in B&M.
