Wheater s Functional Histology presents the student with a resource of high quality photomicrographs and electron micrographs of largely human tissues along with a concise text appropriate for modern medical and other bioscience courses The microstructure of tissues is related to function and clinical significance The book starts with a section on general cell structure and replication The second section examines the basic tissue types of blood, supporting connective tissue, epithelial tissue, muscle and nervous tissues The third and major section examines the microstructure of the major body systems For each chapter there is an introductory description followed by a collection of illustrations, each with an extended explanatory caption This book is ideal for those courses where considerable time is still devoted to the subject Functional Histology will be used as an atlas to go alongside one of the major discursive textbooks For shorter courses Functional Histology will be used as the sole text The great strength of this book is that it is written from the point of view of the student Each chapter has a brief overview of the topic, but most of the information is in the explanatory captions that accompany the high quality photomicrographs....

Wheater's Functional Histology: A Text and Colour Atlas (Functional Histology (Wheater's)) Reviews

    This new edition of Wheater's features more quick-reference tables and diagrams, while still focussing on the relationship between structure and function of cells. The authors understand that not all students enjoy histology. It is designed to dip in and out of, and makes the time spent on histology slightly less tedious and more productive. The slides are of very high quality and more EM slides have been included than in previous editions. This edition is keeping up with the needs of students.Also included is a CD ROM of all the slides in the book and a programme to enable these to be arranged into tailored presentations. This can also be used as a random slide presentation to test knowledge.Young and Heath have improved an old classic, making this a very good buy for all with an interest (voluntary or enforced) in Histology

    For a used book, this one is in excellent condition. This is a great textbook for self-learning and I recommend it highly. This book was recommended by a professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Berkley University in a classroom setting (about 2006).

    Perfect book for functional histology. Pages and size are a bit different than previously printed issues by the publisher, but they added a margin area at the bottom of the page which is nice for taking notes. Pages are quality (not saying they are worse than older additions, better I would think).

    I always select a book in good conditions or better and this one met my expectations. Thank you I am very happy with my purchase.

    As I purchased a used textbook, the book does show minimal signs of use such as dull edges and previous owner's name, however they do not affect the overall quality of the textbook. The product arrived promptly with two day shipping. The price was very reasonable, as well. I would recommend both the textbook and seller.
