Frederic (“Ric”) Martini, now joined by accomplished educator and award-winning teacher Judi Nath as his new co-author, builds on his best-selling text by making the Eighth Edition the most student-focused and the easiest to use of all editions yet published. Student-focused elements include new chapter-opening Learning Outcomes, new sentence-style chapter headings that not only introduce new topics but also teach, and a new and simple Tips & Tricks feature that gives you easy analogies and mnemonic devices to help you remember information. The award-winning art program has been enhanced with more deeply contrasting colors and more dimensionality.
Every book is automatically packaged with Martini’s Atlas of the Human Body, the Interactive Physiology® (IP) 10-System Suite CD-ROM (including the brand-new and eagerly-awaited 10th module on the Immune System), and access to the dramatically upgraded myA&P™ companion website. Convenient references in the chapters of the book to the Atlas, IP-10, and myA&P help you seamlessly integrate each component into your study routine. In addition to IP-10 and myA&P, the enhanced media offerings for this edition include the new 3D Anatomy Animations with Gradable Quizzes, the new 3D Animations of Origins, Insertions, Actions, and Innervations with Gradable Quizzes.
This text now comes with access to MasteringA&P. The great content you're used to seeing in myA&P is also available in the self-study area of MasteringA&P.

Dr. Judi L. Nath is a professor of Biology and Health Sciences at Lourdes College in Sylvania, Ohio, where she teaches anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, pharmacology, and pathophysiology. After receiving her bachelor’s degrees in biology and German from Bowling Green State University, she continued on at Bowling Green to earn her master’s degree and her Ph.D. from the University of Toledo. Dr. Nath is devoted to her students and strives to convey the intricacies of science in a captivating way that students find meaningful, interactive, and exciting. She won Lourdes’ “Faculty Excellence” award, granted by the college to recognize her effective teaching, scholarship, and community service. Dr. Nath has also served as biology department chair. Being a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) is one of her passions, and she has been elected to office twice and has served on several committees, including the Curriculum and Instruction Committee, which was charged with developing outcomes that match the prescribed curriculum standards established by HAPS. She also holds professional memberships in the American Association of Anatomists (AAA), the Society for College Science Teaching (SCST), and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She is the sole author of Using Medical Terminology: A Practical Approach (published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins), the first book to use a “foreign language/total immersion” approach to teaching medical terminology within the context of applied anatomy and physiology. Dr. Nath has also written ancillary materials, including lecture outlines and test items, for several Martini A&P textbooks. In her spare time Judi takes pleasure in bicycling, playing piano, and enjoying life with her husband, Mike, and their dogs.
