The author presents the basic concepts and terminology of plant anatomy with a special emphasis on its significance and applications to other disciplines, and addresses the central role of anatomy by consolidating previously scattered information into a single volume. Integrative Plant Anatomy highlights the important contribution made by studying anatomy to the solutions of a number of present and future problems. It succeeds in integrating diverse areas of botany, as well as the non-biological sciences, the arts, and numerous other fields of human endeavor. * Presents both the classical and modern approaches to the subject * Teaches the importance of the subject to other disciplines such as the nonbiological sciences, the arts, and other fields of human endeavor * Written and organized to be useful to students and instructors, but also to be accessible and appealing to a general audience * Bridges the gap between conventional textbooks and comprehensive reference works * Includes key terms and extensive additional readings * Richly illustrated with line drawings and photographs."@en ;
