ANATOMY OF SEED PLANTS  2ND ED

This is an authoritative text/reference on the structure and development of seed plants. It presents the latest concepts in plant anatomy through experimental, histochemical, and ultrastructural approaches to the study of biological material. The book also includes new concepts and terms; expanded sections on flower, fruit, and seed; and a new description of characters used in keying out woods.· Development Of The Seed Plant · The Cell · Cell Wall · Parenchyma And Collenchyma · Sclerenchyma · Epidermis · Xylem: General Structure And Cell Types · Xylem: Variation In Wood Structure · Vascular Cambium · Phloem · Periderm · Secretory Structures · The Root: Primary State Of Growth · The Root: Secondary State Of Growth And Adventitious Roots · The Stem: Primary State Of Growth · The Stem: Secondary Growth And Structural Types · The Leaf: Basic Structure And Development · The Leaf: Variations In Structure · The Flower: Structure And Development · The Flower: Reproductive Cycle · The Fruit · The Seed · Embryo And Seedling

Plant Anatomy

This text is unique in the extensive use of over 1150 high-resolution color micrographs, color diagrams and scanning electron micrographs.

Plant Anatomy

Intended as a text for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students and as a potential reference, this broad-scoped resource is extensive in its educational appeal by providing a new concept-based organization with end-of-chapter literature references, self-quizzes, and illustration interpretation. The concept-based, pedagogical approach, in contrast to the classic discipline-based approach, was specifically chosen to make the teaching and learning of plant anatomy more accessible for students. In addition, for instructors whose backgrounds may not primarily be plant anatomy, the features noted above are designed to provide sufficient reference material for organization and class presentation. This text is unique in the extensive use of over 1150 high-resolution color micrographs, color diagrams and scanning electron micrographs. Another feature is frequent side-boxes that highlight the relationship of plant anatomy to specialized investigations in plant molecular biology, classical investigations, functional activities, and research in forestry, environmental studies and genetics, as well as other fields. Each of the 19 richly-illustrated chapters has an abstract, a list of keywords, an introduction, a text body consisting of 10 to 20 concept-based sections, and a list of references and additional readings. At the end of each chapter, the instructor and student will find a section-by-section concept review, concept connections, concept assessment (10 multiple-choice questions), and concept applications. Answers to the assessment material are found in an appendix. An index and a glossary with over 700 defined terms complete the volume.

Anatomy of Flowering Plants

In the 2007 third edition of her successful textbook, Paula Rudall provides a comprehensive yet succinct introduction to the anatomy of flowering plants.

Anatomy of Flowering Plants

In the 2007 third edition of her successful textbook, Paula Rudall provides a comprehensive yet succinct introduction to the anatomy of flowering plants. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the book covers all aspects of comparative plant structure and development, arranged in a series of chapters on the stem, root, leaf, flower, seed and fruit. Internal structures are described using magnification aids from the simple hand-lens to the electron microscope. Numerous references to recent topical literature are included, and new illustrations reflect a wide range of flowering plant species. The phylogenetic context of plant names has also been updated as a result of improved understanding of the relationships among flowering plants. This clearly written text is ideal for students studying a wide range of courses in botany and plant science, and is also an excellent resource for professional and amateur horticulturists.
