  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! PhysioEx™ Version 2.0 CD-ROM, packaged free with each new copy of the Laboratory Manual, presents seven interactive, simulation-based experiments. The CD-ROM provides easy navigation, and encourages students to repeat experiments and change parameters to produce multiple outcomes. Corresponding printed exercises are included in each lab manual. Pg. 761<196>Main; Pg. 814<196>Cat; Pg. 813<196>Pig
  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! Art and photomicrographs help students visualize anatomical and physiological concepts. Pg. 292
  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! Dissection icons clearly indicate the beginning and end of a dissection activity. Pg. 244
  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! Homeostasis icons highlight clinical materials that reinforce the concept of disease as loss of homeostatic balance. Pg. 225
  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! Safety icons alert students to the need for protective precautions. Pg. 185
  • NEW - <F75BS>NEW! An adam.com® (formerly A.D.A.M.® software) Interactive Anatomy(AIA) appendix correlates selected anatomical lab observations with corresponding sections in AIA. In addition, adam.com® icons highlight where material covered in a lab exercise is also found in adam.com®Interactive Anatomy. Pg. 736<196>Main; Pg. 790<196>Cat and Pig
  • The author's clear instructions and well-planned labs leave instructors free to focus on concepts and science. Pg. 228
  • The comprehensive selection of experiments for hands-on work offers instructors choices and clearly guides students through each exercise. Pg. 339
  • Clear, engaging exercises with strong visual appeal help students apply concepts as they touch, cut, examine, measure, and reason. Pg. 82
