The Hidden Beauty of Stems—by Lee W. Wilcox
ISBN 978-0-9863935-5-6 | 149 pp. | ca. 35 MB | $15
Following a brief, illustrated introduction to stems and their anatomy (aimed at the botanical novice), some 130 pages of brilliant images reveal the exquisite beauty and detail that can be seen in the stems of more than 115 plant species, at both the macro- and microscopic scale. Emphasis is placed on cross sections of live material, which arguably provide the most dramatic views of stem anatomy. The intricate detail and wide variety of colors seen in the cross sections will likely surprise the layperson but even professional botanists will appreciate having so many dramatic images in one place. In addition to the microscopic images, part- or whole-plant views are included to provide context.
