This completely revised manual is now in full color! It contains a series of 55 exercises for the laboratory setting that provide guided explorations of human anatomy and labeled examples of commonly seen histology and dissection specimens. The rat, the cat, and the featal pig are offered as options for many of the more comprehensive dissection activities making this three laboratory manuals in one. Exercises include the labeling of anatomy, dissection of anatomic models and fresh or preserved specimens, physiological experiments, computerized experiments, and practical applications exercises. The manual also includes safety tips and a comprehensive instruction and preparation guide for the laboratory.

• The modular organization of exercises allows their use in virtually any order required by the needs of individual courses.
• The built-in, full-color Laboratory Reference — with 90 labeled examples of commonly seen histology and dissection specimens — facilitates anatomy identification.
• The user-friendly spiral binding allows hands-free viewing in the laboratory setting.
• Numerous illustrations of proper procedures complement the complete description of activities.
• Hundreds of two-color anatomy illustrations reinforce learning of anatomical structures.
• 55 laboratory exercises provide a variety of learning experiences for students.
• Complete lists of materials for each exercise give students and instructors a handy reference for efficient setup of laboratory activities.
• Boxed hints provide students with special tips on handling specimens, using equipment, and managing their laboratory activities.
• Safety tips highlighted in special boxes remind students of potential hazards — such as fire, chemical spills, cuts, or biological contamination.
• Content and concept review questions throughout encourage students to reinforce and apply their knowledge of human structure and function.
• Practical applications to exercise and athletics, clinical situations, and everyday experiences increase student motivation and place important concepts in a useful context.
• Special reference supplements help students in their examination of laboratory specimens.
• Learning objectives at the beginning of each exercise offer a framework for learning.
• Easy-to-evaluate Lab Report formats allow instructors to check student work or assign grades in an efficient manner.

• Now in full-color!

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Loretta L. White , DNS (Indiana State University)
Description: This lab manual is meant to accompany any standard anatomy and physiology textbook. Its numerous exercises help students connect reading and reality through hands-on experience in the laboratory environment. The last edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: Although not explicitly stated, the author notes that this book provides "guided explanations" of the human body for the student and technical support for the instructor. Helping students understand the intricacies of the human body is never an easy task but this manual goes a long way toward accomplishing it.
Audience: It is intended to assist students in the laboratory setting and to that end it meets and exceeds expectations. The author has published many other books in the field.
Features: The manual covers all body systems. Students are provided opportunities to explore microscopic as well as macroscopic structures in the many exercises in each chapter. Student activities include naming, coloring, identifying, and filling in blanks. The colored dissection plates are clearly labeled for easy identification of body parts. The addition of an index would enhance an otherwise very complete text.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive, in-depth look at human anatomy and physiology from the laboratory perspective. This high quality book would be an asset for both the student and instructor. New information, constantly added to our understanding of the human body, makes new editions of texts such as this one imperative.
