Helping your students master the essentials of A&P has never been easier! Using simple, conversational language and vivid illustrations, Structure & Function of the Body, 15th Edition makes previously difficult anatomy and physiology concepts clear and easy to understand. In addition to its focus on the normal structure and function of the human body and what the body does to maintain homeostasis, this new edition boasts new high quality animations from Animation Direct and a new Language of Science and Medicine feature that infuses important medical terminology into related A&P principles. The result is a firm understanding of the structure, function, and ways to describe the body that are essential for effective patient care.

    • Conversational and clear writing style makes content easy to read and understand.
    • Full-color design contains more than 400 drawings and photos.
    • Clear View of the Human Body is a unique, full-color, semi-transparent insert depicting the human body (male and female) in layers.

    • Questions for review are found throughout the chapters and cover critical thinking, open-ended, fill-in-the-blank, matching, multiple-choice, and other question formats. 
    • Chapter outlines, objectives, and outline summaries offer readers easy ways to organize and prioritize content.
    • NEW! Language of Science and Medicine section in each chapter includes key terms, word parts, and pronunciations to place a greater focus on medical terminology.
