Since its first edition Human Anatomy as been praised for its clarity of presentation, its outstanding visually-oriented illustration program, and its ability to help users understand anatomical structures. Past editions of Human Anatomy have won very prestigious awards, including the award for Textbook Excellence by the Text and Academic Authors Association and the award for Illustration Excellence by the Association of Medical Illustrators. Innovative pedagogical elements and a tightly integrated supplements package make this new edition an excellent choice for all anatomy studies. The exhaustive volume provides an introduction to anatomy and addresses cells, the tissue level of organization, integumentary system, the skeletal system, the muscular system, surface anatomy, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the urinary system, the reproductive system, and human development. For health care professionals of all kinds, massage therapists, forensic medical examiners and athletic trainers.

A comprehensive introduction to human anatomy for students majoring in biology or fulfilling prerequisites for nursing, allied health, or pre-med programs. The book has an outstanding art program that combines award-winning medical illustrations by William Ober, M.D. and cadaver and bone photos by the renown biomedical photographer Ralth Hutchings. The text also includes innovative pedagogical elements which make this book the clear choice for introductory anatomy courses.About the Author:
Frederic H. Martini received his Ph.D. in comparative and functional anatomy from Cornell University. Dr. Martini's publications include numerous journal articles, technical reports, and magazine articles. He is the author of Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, First Edition, and the Human Body in Health and Disease, First Edition with Edwin Bartholomew, and Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology, First Edition with George Karleskint. Dr. Martini is a member of the American Association of Anatomists, the American Physiological Society, the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, the National Association of Biology Teachers, the Society for College Science Teachers, the Western Society of Naturalists, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the National Association of Underwater Instructors.
Dr. Martini has been involved in teaching undergraduate courses in anatomy and physiology (comparative and/or human) since 1970. During the 1980s he spent his winters teaching courses, including human anatomy and physiology, at Maui Community College and his summers teaching an upper-level field course in vertebrate biology and evolution at the Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML) for Cornell University. Dr. Martini now retains affiliations with the University of Hawaii and SML.
Robert B. Tallitsch received his Ph.D. in physiology with an anatomy minor from the University of Wisconsin–Madison at the ripe old age of 24. Since then Bob has been on the biology faculty at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. His teaching responsibilities include Human Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Histology, Kinesiology and Cadaver Dissection. Bob is also a member of the Asian Studies faculty at Augustana, and teaches a course in Traditional Chinese Medicine in this program. Bob’s previous research grants, journal articles and abstracts center around the effect of hypoxia on contractile mechanics, sodium and calcium transport in papillary muscles isolated from genetically hypertensive rats. His publications for Prentice Hall include Histology: A Diagnostic Atlas with Ron Guastaferri (Art Coordinator and Illustrator, First Edition, 2004). Bob is a member of the American Physiological Society, AsiaNetwork and the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society. In addition to his teaching responsibilities at Augustana Bob has served as a visiting faculty member in the Department of Cardiology at Johns Hopkins College of Medicine, the Foreign Languages Faculty at the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology, the Foreign Languages Faculty at Central China Normal University (Wuhan, PRC), and a visiting scientist in the National Institutes of Health Gerontology Research Center at the National Institutes of Aging.
Michael J. Timmons received his degrees from Loyola University, Chicago. For more than three decades he has had a strong commitment to teaching human anatomy and physiology to nursing and preprofessional students at Moraine Valley Community College. Early in his teaching career, Professor Timmons became very interested in publishing in those fields. He is a coauthor of Human Anatomy Laboratory Guide and Dissection Manual, the lab manual that accompanies this text, and of three anatomy and physiology laboratory manuals. He is also the editor of the Prentice Hall Laser Disk with Bar Code Manual; author of Atlas, the laboratory learning system; and content editor for the Instructor’s Presentation Manager 4.0 CD-ROM, which are supplements to this text. His special areas of interest are biomedical photography, crafting illustration programs, and developing instructional technology learning systems. He has authored a series of titles on the dissection of the cat, including A Photographic Atlas of Cat Anatomy, Cat Anatomy Slides: A Visual Guide to Dissection, and numerous study guides.
Professor Timmons is an active member of scientific and professional associations. He is also a national and regional presenter at the League for Innovation Conferences on Information Technology for Colleges and Universities and at Human Anatomy and Physiology Society meetings.
