A guide to the basic principles of human anatomy, including figure questions, self-quizzes, critical thinking questions and an atlas of the human skeleton. An analysis of the body's structure is provided, and linked to functions to help the student understand anatomical concepts.
This text provides students with a basic understanding of the human body, focusing on anatomy. Features new to this edition include figure questions, self-quizzes and critical thinking questions. Art and text are integrated to provide an analysis of the body's structures, linking them to functions to help the student understand anatomical concepts. An atlas of the human skeleton is also included, and this acts as an aid to supplement the text and illustrations. The focus is on anatomy and anatomical terminology, with as few references to physiology as possible. It also explores the defects and disorders in clinical settings.
