Histology A Text and Atlas 7th Edition PDF
129.19 MB PDF
This seventh edition of Histology: A Text and Atlas with Correlated Cell and Molecular Biology continues its tradition of introducing health science students to histology correlated with cell and molecular biology. As in previous editions, this book is a combination “text-atlas” in that the standard textbook descriptions of histologic principles are supplemented by an array of schematics, tissue and cell images, and clinical photographs. In addition, the separate atlas sections now conclude each chapter to provide large-format, labeled atlas plates accompanied by legends that highlight and summarize the elements of microscopic anatomy. Histology: A Text and Atlas is, therefore, “two books in one.”
The following significant modifications have been made to this edition:
“Histology 101” sections have been added at the end of each chapter. These new sections contain essential information for a quick review of the material listed in a bullet-point format and are perfect for students who find themselves on the eve of quizzes or examinations. These reader-friendly sections are designed for fast information retrieval with concepts and facts listed in separate boxes.
All figures in this book have been carefully revised and updated. Many schematics and flowcharts have additionally been redrawn. More than one-third of all figures have been replaced by new drawings designed to show the latest interpretation of molecular, cellular, and tissue concepts based on recent discoveries in molecular research. All drawings maintain a uniform style throughout the chapters with a palette of eye-pleasing colors. Several conceptual drawings have been aligned side by side with photomicrographs, a feature carried over from the sixth edition that was widely agreeable to reviewers, students, and faculty members.
Cellular and molecular biology content has been updated. Text material introduced in the sixth edition has been updated to include the latest advancements in cellular and molecular biology, stem cell biology, cellular markers, and cell signaling. Th e seventh edition focuses on target concepts to help students with overall comprehension of the subject matter. To accommodate reviewers’ suggestions, the seventh edition integrates new information in cell biology with clinical correlates, which readers will see as new clinical information items in blue text and clinical folders. For example, within the adipose tissue discussion, the reader might also discover a cell biology topic regarding white-to-brown fat transdifferentiation. Also added is a basic discussion on virtual microscopy, a new approach used in the majority of U.S. histology courses.
