Overview

Designed to provide students with a foundation in understanding and interpreting histologic and cytologic preparations, Color Atlas of Veterinary Histology is a practical benchside reference focusing on the normal histology of eight common domestic species. This Third Edition has been revised with new images, information, and updated terminology throughout. Introductory chapters have also been expanded to offer more complete coverage of the basic types of tissues, providing an even more thorough grounding in the principles of histology. For the first time, the more than 900 photomicrographs are available digitally in an online interactive atlas, offering images available for download with zoom capability. The new edition of this veterinary-specific histology atlas provides veterinary and veterinary technician students with an essential pictorial resource for interpreting histologic preparations.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“However, for novices tackling histology for the first time, the expansion of the introductory sections, helpful hints, information delivered mainly as coloured images and the interactive DVD, all make the third edition very attractive and user-friendly.” (The Veterinary Journal, 1 August 2013)

“Despite those deficiencies, the book is fairly priced and is a one-of-a-kind English-language, educational resource.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“The CD provided will help you revising. The key to passing your next “histo” exam is now available!.” (Tomorrow's vets, 1 September 2013)

“The text would be helpful to students studying veterinary histology and as a reference for both veterinarians in practice and veterinary pathologists.” (Australian Veterinary Journal, 1 April 2013)

"The revisions provide the latest information while a DVD with an interactive histology atlas offers zoom capability and more study review questions, making this a 'must' for any college-level collection appealing to veterinary students." (Bookwatch, 1 December 2012)

“The great photographs in this book make it attractive, and draw the reader in to explore the attached text explaining the ways that the different types of tissue contribute to a working anatomy.” (Veterinary Practice, 1 November 2012)

E. J. Ehrhart
This is a revision of the previous edition published in 1990 and authored by the same two authors. The book is a 318-page textual and pictorial reference of veterinary comparative histology organized as 20 chapters with a reference glossary. The purpose is to provide an educational text of comparative veterinary histology for the veterinary student as well as a reference for others interested in normal veterinary histology. There are several veterinary histology texts currently available, each with its strengths and weaknesses. This atlas has several strong attributes that make it a valuable asset in veterinary libraries. The primary objective is to provide a useful text for the veterinary curriculum and this has been adequately accomplished with this text. In addition to the veterinary graduate student, this text would be valuable for clinicians interested in histopathology and cytology as well as veterinary anatomical and clinical pathologists. This is a textual and pictorial histology reference. There is a brief overview of histology laboratory techniques prior to the histology text. The histology is introduced with an overview of tissue types, followed by individual tissues. Then the authors systematically cover all basic organ systems and finish with specialty organs. There is a useful glossary new to this edition. The text is comparative in nature, as the authors present the basic structures common to the dog, cat, horse, cow, sheep, goat, pig, and chicken and then identify any unique differences. Complete textual descriptionare provided, with rare graphical drawings. The text is complete and concise but intricate detail is not provided. There is minimal information atthe cellular level. The histology text is not supplemented by physiologic information. The text is supported by an abundance of colored histology photos, each clearly labeled and described by a useful legend. This latter feature is the primary strength of this text. The large majority of photographs are of excellent quality and represent tissues and structures frequently and infrequently evaluated by a pathologist. Low magnification photos occasionally lack good resolution but still adequately demonstrate the histology. This second edition is useful not only for the veterinary student but also as a general reference for the veterinary pathologist. It represents one of the best photographic guides to comparative histology available. Although the text is concise, it is complete and the authors provide the bulk of knowledge of histology. For extremely detailed histology and cellular descriptions, more advanced texts specific to the organ system of interest are needed.

Provides veterinary students with a foundation in understanding and interpreting histologic and cytologic preparations, focusing on normal histology in seven animal species. Explanatory text compares the histologic structure of organs of domestic animals with color photomicrographs (light microscopy and colored photomicrographs have been used exclusively). This second edition contains 13 new color photos and four new b&w drawings, with some 100 photos enlarged. Also new is a glossary of nearly 750 words. William Bacha is professor emeritus in biology at Rutgers University. Linda Bacha is assistant professor of biology at Camden County College. Annotation c.
