Overview

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.
