The main aim of this book is to provide a developmental perspective to plant anatomy. Authors Steeves and Sawhney provide fundamental information on plant structure and development to students at the introductory level, and as a resource material to researchers working in nearly all areas ofplant biology i.e., plant physiology, systematics, ecology, developmental genetics and molecular biology. The book is focused on angiosperm species with some examples from different groups of plants. Essentials of Developmental Plant Anatomy starts with an introductory chapter and a brief introduction to plant cell structure, which is followed by the structure of the flower, plant reproduction (vegetative and sexual) and the development and structure of embryo - the precursor to the plant body.Each chapter then deals with essential information on the shoot system, diversity of plant cells and tissues, the structure and development of the stem, leaf, root, and the secondary body.

Editorial Reviews

"This book will be a welcome addition in the teaching of plant biology, especially developmental plant anatomy. I feel this book will appeal to the 'modern' plant biology students, as it is not overly burdened with terminology and succinctly written. I believe this book will capture students'imagination and will encourage students to seek further information when needed. It will serve both as a guide and a reference. In fact, I will use this as a text for my class." --Dr. Edward Yeung, University of Calgary
