Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory Textbook, Complete and Short Versions Seventh Edition
by Harold J. Benson, Stanley E. Gunstream, Arthur Talaro and Kathleen P. Talaro, all of Pasadena City College

Written by one of the most respected author teams in college publishing, Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory Textbook is designed for introductory courses, and offers a broad spectrum of topics and extensive histological content. Now with a new, completely updated design, both the Complete and Short versions are written and designed with a focus on educating the student. In addition to dozens of effective exercises, these manuals are unique in that students are asked to label many of the figures to reinforce concepts. Both versions have been researched and structured to be the most comprehensive and up-to-date laboratory textbooks available.

The Complete Version utilizes the cat as the primary laboratory specimen. The Complete Version is an educational leader that is recognized for being self-contained, detailed, and logical in its approach. Now with a fresh, new design, this manual contains an extensive, full-color histology atlas with descriptive annotations.

The Short Version is ideal for one– or two–semester labs not using a primary animal dissection specimen. Succinct background information makes the 68 exercises interesting and effective.

Updated features of both versions include:

  • New, fresh design.
  • New histology quizzes reinforce tissue recognition.
  • Lab set-up illustrations show how to prepare laboratory equipment.
  • New illustrations include the microscope; cell anatomy; neuromuscular junction; myofilament structure; the ultrastructure of a muscle fiber; fetal circulation; anatomy of the kidney; and male and female reproductive organs. The muscle illustrations have also been re-worked to be more lifelike.
  • Eponyms have been replaced with more proper, scientific anatomical terms making this manual more accurate and scientifically correct.
  • Slice of Life Videodisc images can be easily accessed using the bar code reader now located in the Instructor’s Manual.
  • Updated, Intelitool exercises featuring five separate exercises specifically prepared for use with the Intelitool software/hardware systems.
