Excerpt from Elements of Vegetable Histology: For the Use of Students of Pharmacy, Preparatory, to the Study of Pharmacognosy; With 62 Illustrations
This little book is intended to serve as a guide for beginners in the study of plant tissues with the microscope, with supple mental instruction from the teacher.
The greater portion deals with the tissues and their arrange ment in the higher plants, but it was thought advisable to intro duce a few lessons on the simplest plants, namely, some of those of the Thallophyte series, not only on account of their great importance in the life economy, but also to show the gradual increase in complexity of structure in passing from the ex tremely simple and minute plants of the Thallophyte series to the complicated highly organized members of the Phanerogams, thus giving the student a complete view of the structure and characteristics of the whole range of the vegetable kingdom.
