Overview

Elaine Marieb once again brings her dedicated attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality to the Sixth Edition of her best-selling Human Anatomy and Physiology textbook. Each page of this new edition has been carefully reviewed and edited to give readers the most clear and concise explanations of difficult topics. The enhanced art program helps even the least-prepared readers understand key concepts, and the restructured and expanded media package offers readers convenient access to more animations, tutorials, and online resources than ever before. Cutting-edge research areas such as DNA fingerprinting and stem cell research have been added. For college instructors, students, and readers interested in human anatomy and physiology.

An electronic gallery of images used to simulate a laboratory cadaveric dissection. Contains over 6,000 color photos of the human body in various stages of dissection along with hundreds of hand drawn illustrations, photos from models and skeletons, and detailed text describing each step. Over 4,700 multiple choice test questions.

Editorial Reviews

Rodney Lahren
"This program is a boon to students of gross anatomy, as some features in the cadaver lab can be rather obscure or absent in particular individuals. The ability to review the procedures before proceeding with formal dissection and to review at an individual pace outside the lab can only enhance the learning process. I found the program to be extremely easy to use." (Lahren, Rodney H., M.D.: "Books, Journals, Software", JAMA, vol. 274, no 11., September 20, 1995, p. 921.)
Booknews
The fourth edition continues to emphasize interrelationships of body organ systems, homeostasis, and complementarity of structure and function. The retouched art and new pedagogical features reflect the textbook's recent induction into the digital age. Brand new to this edition are the student study tips<-->creative ways to cope with the huge volume of information presented. The CD-ROM is an animated interactive study tool with case studies and images. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Meet the Author

For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student's perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach 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.

In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.

In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.

Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology¨ CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and Sigma Xi. Anatomy & Physiology, Second Edition is the latest expression of her commitment to student needs in their pursuit of the study of A&P.

Dr. Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. Dr. Hoehn's first love is teaching. Her teaching excellence has been recognized by several awards during her 14 years at Mount Royal College. These include 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).

Dr. Hoehn received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research. During her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies, she also pursued her passion for teaching by presenting guest lectures to first- and second-year medical students at Dalhousie University and at the University of Calgary

Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. She oversaw the recent revision of the Interactive Physiology modules, and co-authored the newest module, The Immune System.

Dr. Hoehn is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). When not teaching, she likes to spend time outdoors with her husband and two boys, compete in triathlons, and play Irish flute.
