Does anyone have a good protocol for making leaf "skeletons," that have
just the veins remaining?  I have seen some excellent examples of
skeletons and would like to have my students make some in class.  We've
tried boiling in sodium hydroxide, but that didn't work very well.  One
of my students showed me the work of Booker Morey and Leaflines (a quick
google will show these images) and would like to make some skeletons
showing that kind of detail. Thanks!
