Detailní popis produktu
Features that enhance understanding:
- Carefully selected labeling helps students learn and remember structures and relationships.
- Male and female of a given species are depicted on facing pages so that topographic anatomy is easy to compare.
- Structures common to various animals are labeled several times, whereas unique structrur5es are labeled only on one or two species so students can make rapid distinctions of the structures peculiar to certain animals.
- An introduction provides readers with a background in nomenclature and anatomic orientation so they can benefit from the atlas even if they lack training in anatomy.
The Atlas depicts topographic relationships of major organs in a simple, yet technically accurate presentation that's free of extraneous detail so that those using the atlas can concentrate on the essential aspects of anatomy.
