Description

This full-color laboratory manual is designed for instructors who teach a two-semester introductory anatomy & physiology course, but do not require the full range of laboratory exercises found in Marieb's best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology Lab Manuals (Cat, Fetal Pig, and Main). Though this lab manual can be used with any two-semester text, it will be most effectively used with Marieb's Anatomy & Physiology, Third Edition. Instructors will find 27 concise, activity-based lab exercises that explore basic concepts in anatomy & physiology. For instructors who want their students to experience using a microscope, a complete exercise on its use and care can be found in Appendix A. Each lab is presented with learning objectives, cogent summaries of key concepts, and meaningful activities that build students' observational and laboratory skills. Review sheets are now integrated to conveniently follow each lab exercise. The lab manual also features a full-color, extensive and newly-revised Histology Atlas.

About Elaine N. Marieb

Elaine N. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught A&P to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College with a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. As a result of her contact with her students at Holyoke Community College, many of whom were pursuing degrees in nursing, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of nursing practice. Still teaching full-time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field-including those of former students now in health careers-that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.
