Human Anatomy, Third Edition Update uses a functional approach to explain how the shape and composition of the anatomical structures allow them to perform their functions. This gives students the framework they need to assimilate anatomical concepts and apply them to new situations. The text is distinguished by an art program that brilliantly illuminates the complexities of human anatomy, and a writing style that is clear, informal, and accessible. A comprehensive media supplements package crafted with the same careful attention to accuracy and teaching effectiveness rounds out the text.
