Plant Anatomy Laboratory Micrographs of plant cells and tissues, with explanatory text

Objective of this book is to provide light micrographs of the types of cells and tissues that students typically examine in a plant anatomy course. All micrographs are accompanied by figure legends to help the viewer interpret and understand the structures presented. Each chapter in this web site consists of numerous pages, each with a micrograph and an explanatory text.

Elementary plant biology

One class embraces the functions relating to the life of the individual organism. These functions have to do with the processes of eating, digesting, assimilating, taking in of oxygen, producing of energy, and excreting of waste matters. These may be called the nutritive functions, if the term is used in its broadest sense. To the second group of activities belong the functions that have to do with the perpetuation of the animal or plant species, and these are known as the reproductive functions. Living organisms, whether plant, animal, or human, may, in the third place, be considered in their relations to one another and especially to the general welfare of mankind. Thus we may discuss the beneficial or injurious effects, so far as man is concerned, of different kinds of insects or of various types of bacteria; we may learn of the activities of individual men or of groups of individuals which promote or retard the advance of human society; or we might, if we were to carry the study still farther, even seek to learn the ways by which the higher thoughts of mankind, as expressed in poetry, music, and religion, affect the development of the human race.

Methods and Applications of Plant Cell and Tissue Culture

This lecture note is targeted to plant scientists who may wish to use tissue culture and produce transgenic plants at some point in their research careers, but do not necessarily want to become experts in this area. This note explains the concepts of plant tissue culture and transformation and provide hands-on experience of the most common of these techniques in labs and demonstrations of more advanced or uncommon techniques.
