Paper Abstract

In optical or electron microscopy serial thin or thick sections permit the measurement of the X, Y, Z three-dimensional coordinates of microscopic biological structures. These data permit geometrical parameter computer calculation of the object and its automatic graphical representation. The photographs of serial sections reproduced on lenticular film, or the stereogram of thick sections give a three-dimensional vision of the object studied on the quantitative plane. The association of these various ways of investigation realised for the first time since 1968, define an original technique of three-dimensional study of macro or microscopic biological objects. New examples of the application of this method to the study of the plant chromosomes, are presented.
