Book review of "Plant anatomy—A concept based approach to the structure of seed plants"
Plant Anatomy: A Concept-Based Approach to the Structure of Seed Plants by Crang, Lyons-Sobaski, and Wise is a beautifully-illustrated, 600+ page textbook highlighting the wonderful diversity of anatomical form in plants. The layout of the chapters follows many traditional plant anatomy textbooks. Plant Anatomy begins with an overview of plant morphology and proceeds through evolutionary time and across systems (Chapter 1. The Nature of Plants) before zooming into the microscopic, internal world of plant structures and their function (Chapter 2. Microscopy and Imaging through Chapter 8. Phloem). Quite fortunately, historical context is described throughout these sections, highlighting seminal studies that have shaped the plant sciences over the past 300+ years.
