For courses in Human Physiology
An Integrated Science Needs an Integrated Approach
Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach.
MasteringA&P (R) is not included. Students, if MasteringA&P is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringA&P should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
