The thirteenth edition of the phenomenally successful Principles of Anatomy and Physiology continues to set the standard for the discipline. The authors maintained a superb balance between structure and function and continue to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program continues to be refined and is unsurpassed in the market. The thirteenth edition is fully integrated with a host of innovative electronic media, including a newly enhanced WileyPLUS course. No other text and package offers a teaching and learning environment as rich and complete.

  • A concise narrative, praised by students for its straightforward and easily comprehensible writing style, emphasizes scientific content over extraneous detail.
  • Exhibits specially designed self-contained lessons -- provide students with the extra help needed to learn the numerous structures that constitute certain body systems most notably skeletal muscles, articulations, blood vessels and nerves.
  • The duel themes of homeostasis and disruptions to homeostasis are effectively presented through the relevant use of in-chapter Clinical Connections, end-of-chapter disorder boxes, and end-of-chapter lists of medical terminology.
  • Continued coverage of scientific research and breakthroughs in understanding the human body keep the book on the cutting edge.
  • Carefully integrated learning aids, such as pronunciations, word roots, summary tables, and cross-references complement the readable narrative.
