This is a technical book, suitable for those interested in plant anatomy. It provides a "concise introduction to the internal organisation and microscopic structure of plants", as well as a survey of current research & theory. There are chapters on stems, roots, leaves, flowers and seeds & fruits; each chapter is illustrated with light micrographs, scanning electron micrographs and line drawings. All illustrations are in black-and-white.

This book is fairly small and packed with info - it reads somewhat like a synopsis or study aid. As such, it would be particularly useful for someone starting to do microscope work with plants, for example. The glossary in the back is quite accessible to beginners and advanced students alike. The photographs are interesting and well-labelled.

Recommended, for those making a study of plant anatomy.
