I need a suitable staining procedure for plant roots.  The roots 
I am working with are embedded in a hydrophylic plastic resin.  I am 
looking for a method of differential staining so as to identify the genus 
of the plant by looking at the root.  Does anyone have any ideas?  I 
would appreciate any input.

Thank you,
