This edition of Histology: A Text and Atlas is designed to be used in a four-year undergraduate biology course, and will be a valuable resource in any academic science classroom. The text and atlas can be used in a wide range of settings as an excellent supplement to lectures in medical, health professions, and pre-medicine fields. The text also serves as an excellent resource for continuing education for pathologists and practicing pathologists. The online atlas is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to review the material in a convenient and cost-effective way.
With this New Edition we have taken the textbook to the next level, making it the most informative and easiest-to-use product in the field of histology. With features such as the atlas and interactive element, the New Edition now offers a superior experience for students.
The illustrations are presented in four sections: (1) Contemporary and classical microscopic anatomy; (2) Histochemistry; (3) Tissue typology; and (4) Pathology and systematics. Each section includes a comprehensive overview of the subjects covered and a table of contents. The color photographs provide visual support to the text and are complemented by a separate, versatile, and powerful online interactive atlas that allows direct access to all of the concepts covered and interactive functionality. The atlas includes all of the plates in the text and will provide all of the features described above. The online atlas can be accessed with every device including tablets and smartphones.
In addition, all major updates to the original edition have been incorporated. All changes are based on the most current research and terminology, and the Sixth Edition is revised to reflect new histologic terminology developed by the World Health Organization and the International Histologic Classification of Tumors.
Yet another new concept to provide a complete reference tool for students in the current post-genomic era is the decision to include an online interactive atlas, which features all of the plates in the text with interactive functionality. Six new, enhanced, high-quality images have been added that are free to download. The atlas also provides a way to view the textbook and review the micrographs in a different format. 827ec27edc
