Now in a revised and updated new edition, this text provides a broad introduction to the study of human growth. A familiarity with the basic structure and function of the human body is assumed, and the text is aimed primarily at preclinical medical students and science students being introduced to human biology. It will also be useful to many medical workers, including nurses, paramedics, and clinicians. The text has been thoroughly revised. New illustrations have been added and the chapter on the nature of growth is rewritten. Many other sections have been updated to incorporate new knowledge concerning growth factors and receptors, the staging of puberty, obesity, and osteoporosis. This is the premier text in its field. There is no comparable work in terms of the range of coverage or level of presentation.
