Overview

Human Anatomy, Third Edition, uses a functional approach that explains how the shape and composition of anatomical structures allow them to perform their functions, giving readers the framework they need to assimilate anatomical concepts and apply them to new situations. In addition, the book is distinguished by a newly revised art program that brilliantly illuminates the complexities of human anatomy, and a writing style that is clear, informal, and accessible. For this edition, a comprehensive electronic supplements package has been crafted with the same careful attention to accuracy and teaching effectiveness found in the book. For college instructors and students.
