Overview

The most authoritative histology text available — now in full-color

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

For more than three decades, Junqueira's Basic Histology has been unmatched in its ability to explain the function of cell and tissue structure in the human body. Updated to reflect the latest research in the field, and enhanced with more than 1,000 illustrations, most in full-color, the 12th Edition is the most comprehensive and modern approach to understanding medical histology available anywhere.

Features:

  • NEW full-color micrographs that comprise a complete atlas of tissue sections highlight the important features of every tissue and organ in the human body.
  • New full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to clarify the text and make learning easier
  • A valuable introductory chapter on laboratory methods used for the study of tissues, including the most important types of microscopy
  • A logical organization that features chapters focusing on the cytoplasmic and nuclear compartment of the cell, the four basic tissues that form the organs, and each organ system
  • Expanded legends that accompany each figure emphasize important points and eliminate the need to jump from image to text
  • Medical applications explain the clinical relevance of each topic
  • Complete coverage of every tissue of the body
  • CD-ROM with all the images from the text

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bruce A. Fenderson, PhD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: Histology provides an essential foundation for medicine and basic research in cellular and developmental biology. Students learn to appreciate the organization of tissues and organs at the cellular and subcellular level, and relate morphological patterns to function. This perspective is important because it enables health professionals to understand pathologic aspects of disease. This full-color textbook provides a complete description of human microscopic anatomy. The revised 12th edition includes 23 chapters that cover basic concepts in cell biology and histology using an organ-system system approach.
Purpose: According to the editor of this edition (Anthony Mescher), the goals of this book are to "provide a thoroughly modern treatment of cell and tissue biology, focused on the needs of students in the health professions."
Audience: Written for students in the health professions and advanced undergraduates, it is particularly suited for medical, dental, and nursing students, as well as graduate students in cell and developmental biology.
Features: This full-color book of basic histology is well written, expertly edited, and a joy to read. The text is supplemented with important information on clinically-relevant anatomy, embryology, and physiology. It highlights functions of each of the many tissues and organs. For example, the chapter on immune system and lymphoid organs describes types of immune responses and outlines cell recognition functions of MHC-encoded genes. The full-color illustrations and photomicrographs are absolutely outstanding. Information jumps off the page and engages students in active learning. Every chapter includes a brief outline for orientation. Keywords are highlighted in bold to emphasize key learning objectives. The chapters are filled with color-coded boxes that point out medical applications. A CD-ROM with all the images accompanies the book and is supported by an online learning center.
Assessment: This popular, clinically relevant textbook contains new material, expanded figure legends, and an all-new art program. It is the best integrated histology textbook that I have reviewed. It provides core principles of histology and cell biology that students need to know to succeed on licensing board examinations. The full color glossy pages and beautiful illustrations are a joy to behold, and will help motivate students to learn. This is an outstanding textbook for teaching histology to medical students and allied health professionals. I recommend it highly.
