Overview

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY is an accurate, up-to-date introductory text on human form and function. It presents a large, complex body of scientific knowledge in an easily understood conversational writing style; it focuses on concepts rather than just descriptions to help students unify information. Critical thinking learning opportunities are integrated throughout. The text uses a "big picture" theme of body function and also explains the body's homeostatic regulation. Many pedagogical features and hundreds of 4-color illustrations enhance the narrative.
