Known for its clear descriptions and art program, this lab manual examines every structure and function of the human body. It features dissection of the cat, numerous physiological experiments, and an emphasis on the study of anatomy through histology. In addition to a large variety of illustrations, helpful learning support includes lists of appropriate terms accompanying art, numerous photomicrographs and specimen photos, phonetic pronunciations and derivations of terms, diagrams of lab equipment, and lab report questions and report templates. An instructor's guide is available and provides detailed information for instructors about needed materials, suggestions, and answers to questions.
