Anatomy & Physiology, Third Edition answers the demand for a leaner version of Elaine Marieb and Katja Hoehn's Human Anatomy & Physiology with less in-depth coverage of pregnancy, heredity, and the developmental aspects of various body systems, while keeping basic themes such as homeostatic imbalances strategically in place. This revised edition includes major updates to the content and figures based on current research findings. The text's all new muscle art features more realistic, natural looking colors and textures, and its new "Check Your Understanding" questions follow major sections within each chapter and serve to reinforce and test students' understanding of the major concepts of the section. Elaine Marieb's instinct for providing colorful, dynamic explication of body-system anatomy & physiology creates a focused presentation of basic principles. For this new edition, Dr. Marieb has teamed up with co-author Katja Hoehn to produce this exciting text featuring extensive art development, text revisions, and thoroughly updated supplements and media resources.Focus on homeostasis and concise clinical examples to meet the needs of students enrolled in allied health programs. These clearly identified discussions are an integral part of each chapter, helping students understand that disease is a result of homeostatic imbalance. A dynamic, unsurpassed full-color art program illustrates anatomical structures and physiological processes in fine detail and complements the text. The text's art features all new muscle art with realistic colors that are consistent in style from figure to figure. Clearly identified, pedagogical features include chapter outlines with student objectives, figure questions that help reinforce illustrated concepts, and review questions at the end of each chapter. Students can find chapter summaries for each chapter on the book's website, download them easily, and print them out when needed for studying. Illustrated tables provide one-stop study tools for easy comprehension.
