Plants vs. Animal Microscope Slides Compariset allows you to take the consideration of the differences between plants and animals to a whole different microscopic level. Compare onion leaves and humans, pine stems and earthworms.
What comparison in biology is more fundamental than that between plants and animals? The slides in this set can be used to take this comparison to a different level—microscopic. Epidermal cells from onion leaf are compared and contrasted with those from a human—cells whose similarities in structure are due to similarities in function. Cross sections of pine stems are compared and contrasted with cross sections from an earthworm—both of which have structures specialized for conducting materials through the organism. These and many other points can be made with this set of four slides.
