This lab manual is easy-to-follow for instructors teaching plant structure at the high school, college, and university levels. This book takes students through the process of preparing their own microscope slides from fresh plant samples. The exercises in this book require minimal supplies and equipment and use plants that are readily available. A CD is included with all the illustrations for easy downloading into PowerPoint™ presentations.
This book has been developed from the authors' extensive experience teaching plant anatomy and their conviction that teaching with a 'hands-on' approach is one of the most effective ways to engage students in the learning process. All of the included experiments and exercises have been tested and most require minimal supplies or equipment.
"Although a number of new plant anatomy texts have been published in recent years, none is as innovative, exciting and user-friendly as Teaching Plant Anatomy Through Creative Laboratory Exercises…The book also outlines some easy to use techniques, such as hand sections and clearings and macerations, which will certainly be very useful for any plant related lab. This book really does bring plant anatomy to life and will be a must for any course that deals with plant structure even if it’s just to prepare plant material for molecular techniques." -- Dr. Usher Posluszny, University of Guelph
