This three-day workshop will familiarize participants with various plant parts at the microscopic level to help in understanding the characteristic cellular features of each plant part examined using botanical microscopy techniques. The basic structure of various tissue types will be discussed and identified using examples of some of the popular botanicals. The workshop's goal is to leave participants with the experience necessary to confidently conduct microscopic analysis on botanical materials.
Discussion will be accompanied by hands-on training. Botanical materials in powder form will be examined. Participants will be trained on how to prepare and examine different sections of whole plant parts.
