The Cornell University Plant Anatomy Collection: an online resource for teaching and research.

In this workshop, we will present the CUPAC- The Cornell University Plant Anatomy Collection as an online resource for teaching and research. The CUPAC is an historically important collection of anatomical preparations which includes the General CUPAC and the Palm Collection (CUPAC-Palm). The taxonomic and morphological depth and breath of coverage is enormous ranging from algae to flowering plants, and covers vegetative and reproductive organs. The slides are being digitized and are available online. In this workshop we will introduce the CUPAC web interface that includes the ability to search by taxon, organ, anatomical structure, cell types and tissues, a set of tools for online measurements directly from the slide images, and the ability (account controlled) to overlay private and public labels on the images for courses, course laboratories, interactive quizzes and exams, and other educational purposes.
