The Ninth Edition of this classic histology atlas correlates tissue structure to function. Through illustration and four-color photomicrographs it juxtaposes idealized views with real life ones. With 59 high-quality photomicrographs and three-dimensional, computer-generated overview art, this book magnifies the minutia of organ and tissue structure to show which microscopic structures perform what functions and how said functions work. The functional correlations sections correlate with and directly relate to specific illustrations of tissues as organs. Part One explains tissues and their relationship to their respective systems. Part two addresses organs in similar fashion.
