Description

For one-semester courses in human anatomy.



A functional approach to human anatomy



Human Anatomy, the #1 best-selling textbook for the human anatomy course, is widely regarded as the most readable and visually accessible book on the market. Using a functional anatomy theme, the text presents human anatomy as a well-illustrated "story" with the right amount of detail that learners can understand at an introductory level. Analogies and comparative descriptions make anatomical structures more memorable and understandable and explain how the shape and composition of structures allow them to perform their functions.



The 9th Edition features new exercises and questions that help students learn and use anatomical language and interpret real-world medical images while learning basic human anatomy. Building on the functional anatomy approach of previous editions, selected illustrated tables have been enhanced to tell a more cohesive and logical "story" of human anatomy.
