Now in its revised, updated Sixth Edition, Histology: A Text and Atlas is the perfect text for medical, health professions, and undergraduate biology students. This best-selling combination text and atlas includes a detailed textbook description that emphasizes clinical and functional correlates of histology, fully supplemented by vividly informative illustrations and photographs. Separate, superbly illustrated atlas sections follow almost every chapter and feature large-size, full-color digital micrographs, with labels and legends that highlight details of microanatomy.
For this edition, approximately 20 percent of the micrographs have been replaced with new, sharper, enhanced images. One third of the illustrations have been redrawn in a new style.
A powerful online interactive atlas is included with the book and features all of the plates in the text with interactive functionality.
‘’This is a wonderful learning resource for students of medicine and the life sciences. The authors combine traditional topics in histology with modern research findings in cell biology and medical physiology. The book is comprehensive, clinically relevant, and up to date. It is well-organized and visually attractive. The quality of the tissue photomicrographs and electron micrographs is outstanding. The editors and authors clearly have a keen sense of how students learn. This combined text and atlas provides the information that students need to know to understand the foundations of clinical medicine and succeed on licensing examinations. Students will learn to appreciate the incredible beauty and diversity of cells in the human body.’’ -Bruce A. Fenderson, PhD(Thomas Jefferson University)
