4 Reviews
This revision of the now classic Plant Anatomy offers a completely updated review of the structure, function, and development of meristems, cells, and tissues of the plant body. The text follows a logical structure-based organization. Beginning with a general overview, chapters then cover the protoplast, cell wall, and meristems, through to phloem, periderm, and secretory structures.

"There are few more iconic texts in botany than Esau’s Plant Anatomy… this 3rd edition is a very worthy successor to previous editions…" ANNALS OF BOTANY, June 2007
