Summary

A thorough introductory text on human form and function, this text presents a large, complex body of scientific knowledge in an easily understood, conversational writing style. Focusing on concepts rather than descriptions, the text uses a big picture theme of body function and also explains the bodys homeostatic regulation. For the first time, the textbook includes an electronic version of the text via an attached CD-ROM and learning resources from A&P Online with animations by body system, images, an electronic coloring book, interactive exercises, and more.
