Cryo-scanning electron microscopy (CSEM) in the advancement of functional plant biology: Morphological and anatomical applications

McCully, Margaret E; Canny, Martin; Huang, Cheng


Cryo-scanning electron microscopy (CSEM) is reviewed by exploring how the images obtained have changed paradigms of plant functions and interactions with their environment. Its power to arrest and stabilise plant parts in milliseconds, and to preserve them at full hydration for examination at micrometre resolution has changed many views of plant function. For example, it provides the only feasible way of accurately measuring stomatal aperture during active transpiration, and volume and shape...[Show more]
