This full-color photographic atlas provides clear photographs and drawings of tissues and organisms similar to specimens seen in a botany laboratory. It is designed to accompany any botany (or biology) text or laboratory manual used in the classroom. It provides a balanced visual representation of the major groups of botanical organisms. Care has been taken to construct completely labeled, informative figures and parts of organisms are depicted clearly and accurately. The terminology used matches that found in college botany texts.
Several dissections are provided to give you a guide on how to proceed in the lab. In addition, many photomicrographs and photos of living specimens are included. These figures will enhance your understanding of plant anatomy and classification.
The Atlas has many new or modified illustrations, over 100 re-scanned and or re-imaged photos, and new photomicrographs that closely match what you are likely to observe in the laboratory. Completely labeled, informative figures are depicted clearly and accurately.

Great book to assist Botany students to determine what they are looking at in the microscope. I bought the e-book and had 4 conversations with technical "help" before that actually occurred. You see this is textbook - which somehow makes it so much different than an e-book??? I insisted the last person help and they did - rather than transfer me to oblivion as had earlier occurred in every instance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
