Description

This revision of the now classic Plant Anatomy offers a completely updated review of the structure, function and development of meristems, cells and tissues of the plant body. The text follows a logical structure-based organization. Beginning with a general overview, chapters then cover the protoplast, cell wall, and meristems, through to phloem, periderm, and secretory structures.
