9780729538374: Functional Histology, 2e

The study of histology requires that students be able to recognise structures within cells and tissues at varying levels of magnification, and understand their function within the human body. Since histology is a visual subject, high quality images of cells and tissues are vital as a component of course material. In this book, concise text relates the structures seen in the images to biological function, and integrates clinical relevance by describing how the histology of tissues is affected in abnormal conditions.

Review:

'' The prime reason to consider purchasing this book is therefore the consistently high quality of its plentiful and detailed photomicrographs.These pictures are clearly labelled and well annotated with comprehensive captions. The publisher's claim that this text reproduces ''histologic images that come closer to what is seen down the microscope than any other book'' appears to be justified.'' Dr Laura Keeling
