Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory Textbook, Essentials Version, by Gunstream et al presents the fundamentals of human anatomy and physiology in an easy-to-follow manner appropriate for allied health students. Designed especially for a one-semester course, the Essentials Version features a concise writing style, 38 self-directing exercises, full-color photomicrographs in the Histology Atlas, and numerous relevant illustrations in each exercise. A new contributing author, Kyla T. Ross, of Georgia State University, has revised this sixth edition of the manual, updating terminology, replacing photos and art, and bringing her experience in the lab to the explanations and directions.
