A Doody's Core Title for 2015!

This text is written for the two semester anatomy & physiology course. The writing is comprehensive, providing the depth necessary for those courses not requiring prerequisites, and yet, is presented with such clarity that it nicely balances the thorough coverage. Clear descriptions and exceptional illustrations combine to help students develop a firm understanding of the concepts of anatomy and physiology and to teach them how to use that information. Great care has been taken to select important concepts and to perfectly describe the anatomy of cells, organs, and organ systems. The plan that has been followed for ten editions of this popular text is to combine clear and accurate descriptions of anatomy with precise explanations of how structures function and examples of how they work together to maintain life. To emphasize the concepts of anatomy and physiology, the authors provide explanations of how the systems respond to aging, changes in physical activity, and disease, with a special focus on homeostasis and the regulatory mechanisms that maintain it. This text has more clinical content than any other A & P book on the market.

Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook.

About the Author:

For over 15 years, Jennifer has taught introductory biology, human anatomy and physiology, and genetics at the university and community college level. She has received the Instructor of the Year Award at both the departmental and college level while teaching at USM. In addition, she has been recognized for her dedication to teaching by student organizations such as the Alliance for Graduate Education in Mississippi and Increasing Minority Access to Graduate Education. Jennifer has dedicated much of her career to improving lecture and laboratory instruction at her institutions. Critical thinking and lifelong learning are two characteristics Jennifer hopes to instill in her students. She appreciates the Seeley approach to learning and is excited about contributing to further development of the textbook. She received her PH.D. in biology at the University of Houston, under the direction of Edwin H. Bryant and Lisa M. Meffert. She is an active member of several professional organizations, including the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society. During her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband, Hobbie, and two sons, Patrick and Nicholas.

Andrew F. Russo has over 20 years of classroom experience with human physiology, neurobiology, molecular biology, and cell biology courses at the University of Iowa. He is a recipient of the Collegiate Teaching Award and is currently the course director for Medical Cell Biology and Director of the Biosciences Graduate Program. He is also a member of several professional societies, including the American Physiological Society and the Society for Neuroscience. Andrew received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley. His research interests are focused on the molecular neurobiology of migraine. His decision to join the author team for Seeley’s Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology is the culmination of a passion for teaching that began in graduate school. He is excited about the opportunity to hook students’ interest in learning by presenting cutting-edge clinical and scientific advances. Andy is married to Maureen, a physical therapist, and has three daughters Erilynn, Becky, and Colleen, now in college and graduate school. He enjoys all types of outdoor sports, especially bicycling, skiing, ultimate Frisbee and, before moving to Iowa, bodyboard surfing.

Dr. Philip Tate earned B.S. degrees in both mathematics and zoology and an M.S. in ecology from San Diego State University. He earned his doctorate in biological education from Idaho State University. Phil has taught anatomy and physiology to all levels of students: nursing and allied health, physical education, and biology majors.

Cinnamon L. VanPutte has been teaching biology and human anatomy and physiology for almost two decades. At Southwestern Illinois College she is a full-time faculty member and the coordinator for the anatomy and physiology courses. Cinnamon is an active member of several professional societies, including the Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS). Her Ph.D. in zoology, with an emphasis in endocrinology, is from Texas A&M University. She worked in Dr. Duncan MacKenzie’s lab, where she was indoctrinated in the major principles of physiology and the importance of critical thinking. The critical thinking component of Seeley’s Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology epitomizes Cinnamon’s passion for the field of human anatomy and physiology; she is committed to maintaining this tradition of excellence. Cinnamon and her husband, Robb, have two children: a daughter, Savannah, and a son, Ethan. Savannah is very creative and artistic; she loves to sing, write novels, and do art projects. Robb and Ethan have their black belts in karate and Ethan is one of the youngest black belts at his martial arts school. Cinnamon is also active in martial arts and is a competitive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. She has competed at both the Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship and the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

Dr. Trent Stephens holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Zoology from Brigham Young University and a Ph.D. in anatomy from the University of Pennsylvania. Trent teaches human anatomy, neuroanatomy, and embryology. His skill as a biological illustrator has greatly influenced every illustration in his texts.

Dr. Rod Seeley holds a B.S. in Zoolgy from Idaho State University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Zoology from Utah State University. By being very involved in the methods and mechanism that help students learn, Rod contributes with his teaching expertise and proven ability to communicate effectively.
