For hard-core botany freaks (like me) and students; Dr. Esau was an Old School (European) no-nonsense professor (I was told by *my* prof, who studied under her), researcher, and genius at the microscope. This is an advanced textbook whose *every sentence* is chock full ‘o’ important information (I gave up trying to highlight "important bits" after about page 6.) I love this book!
