I used to teach such a course and also used Bold, et al. Given that yours is
a one-semester course, I think Raven, Evert and Eichhorn is as close as you
are going to get. The illustrations are really great, and this text is
certainly meaty enough to accomodate most of your need. I wrote a lab manual
that actually covered a two semester sequence(Fungi/Algae + Embryophytes)
that you can have if you would like to edit it down to your one-semester needs.
