Resin cast impressions as a tool for microscopic observations of fungal epiphytes on leaves Academic Article uri icon


  • A simple method for fungal epiphyte microscopic observations and preservation is described. A two-part clear casting resin, cotton leaves and two species of fungi were used to validate this protocol. We obtained very detailed images of fungal structures using this approach in addition to retaining the impressions for future reference.
