Identification of Vegetable Fibres


Identification of Vegetable Fibres
D. Catling & J. Grayson, 1998, pp.89


The microscopical characteristics of ten of the most widely used commercial fibers are presented in this publication. Features which are useful for identifying fiber cells are described in detail and explained by reference to the anatomy of the living stem or leaf from which the fibers are extracted. Photomicrographs and drawings are also included in this must for forensic scientists, archaeologists and botanists.
