From:"J. A. Kiernan"

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.
