"This well written text provides a clear, uncluttered overview of the principles and practice of modern light microscopy. It contains many helpful teaching exercises and diagrams. It should prove useful in a wide range of courses from the undergraduate to the postgraduate level."

- Kenneth R. Spring, Ph.D., Author

"Douglas Murphy's book, Fundamentals of Light Microscopy and Electronic Imaging, is a welcome tool to introduce students in the biological sciences to the fundamentals of modern light microscopy and its augmentation by electronic imaging methods. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the range of light-based methods available today. Each section has illustrative exercises and/or demonstrations, making this book readily adaptable to course work."

- Gordon W. Ellis, University of Pennsylvania

"Given the remarkable resurgence of interest in biological microscopy during the past few years and the genuine need for a text in this field, Murphy's book will be warmly welcomed by all cell biologists who use microscopes in their research."
