Anatomy & Physiology,Fourth Edition answers the demand for a leaner version of Elaine Marieb and Katja Hoehn’s top-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology. This streamlined text has removed coverage of pregnancy, heredity, and the developmental aspects of various body systems, while keeping basic themes such as homeostatic imbalances strategically in place. Marieb draws on her career as an A&P professor and her experience as a part-time nursing student, while Hoehn relies on her medical education and classroom experience to explain concepts and processes in a meaningful and memorable way.
The most significant revision to date, the Fourth Edition makes it easier for you to learn key concepts in A&P. The new edition features a whole new art program that is not only more visually dynamic and vibrant than in previous editions but is also much more pedagogically effective for today’s students, including new Focus figures, which guide you through the toughest concepts in A&P. The book has been edited to make it easier than ever to study from and navigate, with integrated objectives, new concept check questions, and a new design program.

Elaine N. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught A&P to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College with a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. As a result of her contact with her students at Holyoke Community College, many of whom were pursuing degrees in nursing, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of nursing practice. Still teaching full-time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field—including those of former students now in health careers—that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.
Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada.

Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research. During her 11 years at Mount Royal College, Dr. Hoehn has received numerous awardsincluding a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching award (2004).
