Plant Cytogenetics: Methods and Instruction fills a critical gap in available resources for an up to date collection of plant cytology methods and guidelines for instruction. It brings together in a single volume the procedures enabling plant cytogenetics in the laboratory and the resources for teaching plant cytogenetics in the classroom at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A companion CD acts as a supplement to the volume that includes a large amount of high quality cytology images in support of the instruction chapters, and available in PowerPoint lecture-slide format.
