This updated third edition not only offers a body systems approach with a strong emphasis on vocabulary and basic anatomy/physiology concepts, but it also presents the basic mechanisms of disease and pathologic conditions associated with each body system. Two unifying themes are integrated in this comprehensive text - the complementary nature of structure and function, and homeostasis. Homeostasis is used to show how "normal" structure and function are maintained, whereas failures of homeostasis are shown as basic mechanisms of disease. The reader is drawn into the subject by a clear, straightforward style, superior illustrations, and student-friendly features. Included FREE with the soft cover text is Body Spectrum - Mosby's Electronic Anatomy Coloring Book CD-ROM.
