Full-color coverage throughout, including more than 400 color figures that are grouped into major sections for quick reference
A wealth of electron micrographs and color micrographs demonstrate cell, tissue, and organ structure
A complete art program integrates illustrations and diagrams of cells and tissues to highlight structural-functional correlates
Helpful tables of histological features in each chapter summarize key concepts
A succinct style and format makes it easy to quickly find important information
Chapters begin with a list of key points

Review quote

"Before this book there was only one real Veterinary Histology text, and that was Bacha and Bacha, a great book with lots of pictures, but zero textual content, nothing to explain the 'Why?' of Histology. Samuelson's book is a totally different story. There are hundreds of histology pictures, macroscopic images, E.M. pictures, giving you the big picture right down to the tiny little details. And if that wasn't good enough, the text explains histology!!! I find histology so difficult to understand, but Samuelson's book explains all of those odd terms you hear in lectures but can't remember. My only gripe is that there isn't a Picture Index, to let you reference a particular picture, and the part of the book covering the liver is smaller than I would like, but when you consider that other Histo texts are just pages of pictures with no useful information this is a huge leap forward. I still have my copy of Bacha and Bacha Histology, but it's going to be getting very dusty on the shelf with my other redundant books."
--- 3rd Year Veterinary Medicine student, Royal Veterinary College, London, UK "d104books of veterinary histology are rare and the textbook of Don A. Samuelson fulfils this obvious lack. It is a good book. It is richly illustrated by high quality colour photographs which are of great help to the students for interpretation of the histological slides. The text is clearly written and well linked to the illustrations giving the reader a strong introduction to the different structures analysed. The content is appropriate to our study program... there is no doubt that it constitutes a very good book and it will be recommended to the students as a reference textbook. In addition, I have proposed that some copies are purchased by the library."
