This text is designed to help students develop a solid, basic understanding of anatomy and physiology without an encyclopedic presentation of detail. Great care has been taken to select important concepts and to perfectly describe the anatomy of cells, organs, and organ systems. The plan that has been followed for eight editions of this text is to combine clear and accurate descriptions of anatomy with precise explanations of how structures function and examples of how they work together to maintain life. To emphasize the concepts of anatomy and physiology, the authors provide explanations of how the systems respond to aging, changes in physical activity, and disease, with a special focus on homeostasis and the regulatory mechanisms that maintain it. Timely and interesting examples demonstrate the application of knowledge in a clinical context.
Art Library: All illustrations in the book (1985), plus the same art saved in gray scale. The images are also pre-inserted into blank PowerPoint slides for ease of use. Unlabeled versions of all 1985 figures are offered, both in color and gray scale formats.
Text-Edit Art: All illustrations (794) are available as Text-Edit art, e.g. art that has removable labels and leader lines for use in lectures, quizzing, and/or assignments.
Photo Library: All photographs from the text (330), including cadaver, bone, histology, and surface anatomy images. Also includes 34 photos saved in unlabeled versions.
Table Library: Every table (200) from the text is provided.
PowerPoint Lecture Outlines: Ready-made presentations that combine art and lecture notes are provided for each chapter of the text.
Active Art Library: Key pieces of art (40) that can be broken down into components or steps and then be rebuilt during lecture to aid comprehension.
Animations Library: Over 100 full-color animations illustrating physiological processes.
