Approximately 250 pages shorter than standard Anatomy & Physiology books, this book is designed for courses that call for less in-depth coverage of chemistry, the special senses, pregnancy, heredity, and the developmental aspects of various body systems, while keeping basic themes, such as homeostatic imbalances, strategically in place. Marieb's instinct for providing colorful, dynamic explication of body system anatomy and physiology creates a focused presentation of basic principles. For college instructors and students.

About the Author

For Elaine N. Marieb, forging a relationship between her students and the anatomy and physiology concepts that will form the basis of their careers has always been a priority. Having gone back to school to get her R.N. degree and an M.S. in gerontological nursing when she was already a college teacher, she is uniquely able to understand the needs of both instructors and students. Elaine is Professor Emeritus of biology at Holyoke Community College, Holyoke, Massachusetts, where she taught anatomy and physiology for 25 years. She has also relocated to Naples, Florida, where she is now Visiting Professor at Edison Community College in nearby Fort Myers, Florida. She keeps in touch with many of her former students, whose experiences in allied health careers provide insights into the changing needs of A&P students.
