Scanning electron microscopy

Scanning electron microscopy can produce high resolution three dimensional representation biological samples. The SEM is of great use in examining micromorphological surface features on the leaf, shoot and roots. Samples can be whole mounts or sections through tissue and are usually coated with a very thin coating of metal (gold, gold/palladium alloy, platinum, or carbon).
