Very clear, high resolution micrographs of well prepared, double-stained sections of plant parts under light microscope; includes sections of monocotyledons, dicotyledons and even some of Gymnosperms and Pteridophytes; each photograph with an informative legend. Each image can be magnified and downloaded by clicking on the image. Adding labels onto images does cover part of it so experts prefer unlabelled images but it would have been helpful to students if each image had a labelled and unlabelled version. Labelled version would have allowed easy identification of the different tissues even by non-expert.
