Reviewer Notes

Welcome to the website that supports the Electronic Plant Anatomy CD-ROM by Crang and Vassilyev.

The Electronic Plant Anatomy CD-ROM deals with the structural characteristics of mature and developing cells, tissues, and organs of seed plants. Anatomical structures of flowering plants are given special emphasis. It is intended to serve as a complete guide for beginning college/university students in plant anatomy, as well as a reference for advanced studies in various fields of plant biology.
