Study the botany of flowerless and seedless plants with the cryptogamae microscope slide sets. Cryptogramae, meaning hidden reproduction, are plants that reproduce by spores without flowers or seeds and include algae, fungi, mosses and ferns. Each slide set includes a full-color brochure with corresponding pictures.
