About the Authors
  • Completely labeled, informative figures are depicted clearly and accurately. Students can test their mastery of the material covered in the lab by studying the hundreds of images in the atlas.
  • Several dissections are provided to give students a guide on how to proceed in the lab. In addition, many photomicrographs and photos of living specimens are included. These figures will enhance student understanding of plant anatomy and classification.
  • The atlas has new life-cycle illustrations, re-scanned and/or re-imaged photos, and new photomicrographs that closely match what students are likely to observe in the laboratory.
What's New in this Edition

These two books have been designed to work together as the Exercises contain references to additional figures found in the Atlas. They can also be adopted separately to provide affordable, effective lab resources. The Atlas serves as an excellent visual reference for use in the lab and can also be used for self-study.  The Exercises provide a concise, inexpensive alternative to the larger, more expensive laboratory manuals on the market.
