Abstract

Fossil tissues generally require specialized processing. Most thin sectioning techniques yield unstained sections or require unwieldy methods to produce stained sections. I outline here two simple techniques for producing stained, ground, thin sections using readily available Romanowsky-type cytology stains and a urine sediment stain. Results are comparable to hematoxylin and eosin stained specimens.
