Book Description

Human Microanatomy is a comprehensive histology text that analyzes human structure and function from the subcellular to organ level of organization. In addition to emphasizing medically relevant information, each chapter considers developmental and evolutionary aspects of microanatomy while also using celebrity medical histories to help provide real-world context for accompanying descriptions of normal histology. The book is richly illustrated with over 1400 full-color micrographs and drawings assembled into cohesive groupings with detailed captions to help elucidate key histological concepts. Text illustrations are further supplemented by hundreds of other light and electron micrographs available in a free digital atlas covering a broad spectrum of microanatomy. Each text chapter also includes a preview, pictorial summary, and self-study quiz to highlight and review essential elements of histology. By incorporating features like medical histories, biological correlates, and various study aids, Human Microanatomy provides an appealing and informative treatment of histology for readers who are interested in the structural bases of cell, tissue, and organ functioning.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Uses celebrity medical histories to help provide context for descriptions of normal histology
  • Supplements medically relevant information with developmental and evolutionary correlates of microanatomy
  • Contains 1400+ full-color micrographs and drawings that illustrate a wide range of histological features
  • Offers free access to an ancillary online atlas with hundreds of additional light and electron micrographs
  • Includes helpful study aids such as chapter previews, pictorial summaries, and self-study quizzes
  • Presents a novel and comprehensive account of the structure and function of human cells, tissues, and organs
