  • World-class art program includes more than 1,400 full-color photos and illustrations to enhance and simplify explanations of difficult concepts.

  • Dozens of unique full-color micrographs of cellular structure enhance student learning.
  • A variety of specialty boxes and tables explain the practical applications of the principles of A&P, such as the Health Matters box on "anesthetics" which explains how anesthetics produce their effects.
  • Current topics (e.g., anthrax, smallpox, human genome project) are addressed in feature boxes. · Case studies challenge students with "real-life" clinical situations.
  • Health Matters and other boxes and tables explain the practical applications of the principles of A&P.
