Abstract
Recent advancements in microscopy and biological technologies have allowed scientists to study dynamic plant developmental processes with high temporal and spatial resolution. Pavement cells, epidermal cells found on leaf tissue, form complex shapes with alternating regions of indentations and outgrowths that are postulated to be driven by the microtubule cytoskeleton. Given their complex shapes, pavement cells and the microtubule contribution towards morphogenesis have been of great interest in the field of developmental biology. Here, we focus on two live-cell imaging methods that allow for early and long-term imaging of the cotyledon (embryonic leaf-like tissue) and leaf epidermis with minimal invasiveness in order to study microtubules throughout pavement cell morphogenesis. The methods described in this chapter can be applied to studying other developmental processes associated with cotyledon and leaf tissue.
