Summary

For one-semester courses in anatomy & physiology.

 

Guide students through a challenging course in Anatomy & Physiology to a future in healthcare

Celebrated for its precise illustrations,emphasis on integration, and engaging clinical content, Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology is crafted especially for students with no prior knowledge of anatomy & physiology and little science background.

 

The 8th Edition guides students through tough A&P topics, helping them retain challenging content in the fast-paced one-semester A&P course. The new edition draws on the outstanding art and hallmark features from the text to create interactives and digital assets that walk students through complicated art and help them to understand difficult concepts. New Build Your Knowledge Interactivesfocus on how the body systems work together to maintain homeostasis. New Spotlight Figure Videos take a popular, visually driven feature from the book and add annotation and narration to break it down for students in an organized, systematic way. .

 

Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering A&P:

Author Biography

FREDERIC (RIC) MARTINI, PH.D. (author) received his Ph.D. from Cornell University. In addition to his technical and journal publications, he has been the lead author of ten undergraduate texts on anatomy and physiology or anatomy. Dr. Martini is currently affiliated with the University of Hawaii at Manoa and has a long-standing bond with the Shoals Marine Laboratory, a joint venture between Cornell University and the University of New Hampshire. He has been active in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) for 24 years and is now a President Emeritus of HAPS. He is also a member of the American Physiological Society, the American Association of Anatomists, the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology, the Australia/New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists, the Hawaii Academy of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the International Society of Vertebrate Morphologists.

 

EDWIN F. BARTHOLOMEW, M.S. (author) received his undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and his M.S. from the University of Hawaii. His interests range widely, from human anatomy and physiology to the marine environment, “backyard” aquaculture, and art. Mr. Bartholomew has taught human anatomy and physiology at both the secondary and undergraduate levels. In addition, he has taught a range of other science courses (from botany to zoology) at Maui Community College (now the University of Hawaii Maui College). For many years, he taught at historic Lahainaluna High School, the oldest high school west of the Rockies, where he assisted in establishing an LHS Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) chapter. He has written journal articles, a weekly newspaper column, and many magazine articles. Working with Dr. Martini, he coauthored Structure & Function of the Human Body and The Human Body in Health and Disease (Pearson). Along with Dr. Martini and Dr. Judi Nath, he coauthored Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology, Tenth Edition. He also coauthored Visual Anatomy & Physiology, Second Edition, with Dr. Martini, Dr. William Ober, Dr. Judi Nath, and Dr. Kevin Petti. Mr. Bartholomew is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, National Science Teacher’s Association, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
