Please suggest a microscope which i can use for multiple purposes especially systematic studies of plants.
Budget 30k to 45k
Just I would like to share my experience. As a student of Taxonomy (special) under the guidance of Prof B.A.Razi (taxonomist – a legend) I was using simple dissection microscope and binocular microscopes to see the minute parts like pollen, cross section of androecium etc. Of course a hand lens was a must. Even now it goes well.
Indian made Stereo dissecting microscope will be useful for dissecting fresh grass spikelets, small flowers, seeing stamens, ovary, disc appendages, pollenia etc. It will have an artificial light source.
