This book's emphasis is the gathering of microscopic data from plant tissues in ways that do not require elaborate and dedicated equipment. The approximately 200 formulas or procedures in this book are gathered from numerous and scattered resources. While some techniques would benefit from access to a microtome, oven, hood, or warming tray, many data yielding preparations can be made with nothing more elaborate than a desk top, a razor blade, and some miscellaneous supplies. Access to a clinical or research grade microscope is assumed. The techniques will be of use to teachers at the college or secondary school levels, as well as anyone with a background in plant structure.
