About this book


Although there are many electron microscopy monographs concerned with animal cells, there are few devoted to plant cells and tissues. In Methods in Plant Electron Microscopy and Cytochemistry, hands-on experimentalists describe the cutting-edge microscopical methods needed for the effective study of plant cell biology today. These powerful techniques, all described in great detail to ensure successful experimental results, range from light microscope cytochemistry, autoradiography, and immunocytochemistry, to recent developments in fluorescence, confocal, and dark-field microscopies. Important advances in both conventional and scanning electron microscopies are also carefully developed, together with such state-of-the-art ancillary techniques as high-resolution autoradiography, immunoelectron microscopy, x-ray microanalysis, and electron systems imaging. Applications are for the most part demonstrated with higher plants, while some are applied to studies of fungi.
Easy-to-use and up-to-date, Methods in Plant Electron Microscopy and Cytochemistry offers todayís plant scientists a firstclass collection
of readily reproducible light and electron microscopical methods that will prove the new standard for all working in the field.
