Overview

Tortora (biology, Bergen Community College) now provides students with the basics of development before moving on to the study of the developmental biology of body systems in this 10th edition of a text/CD-ROM package for introductory courses in human anatomy. Coverage of the autonomic nervous system now follows coverage of the spinal cord and brain to provide students with greater continuity. This edition of the text features 11 perforated pull-outs visualizing the human body, each devoted to a specific body system. Other enhancements to the art program include more histology-based art, and new photomicrographs. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
