The most authoritative, current, and beautifully illustrated histology text available-NEW chapter-ending multiple-choice questions review must-know material
NEW clinical vignettes have been added to each chapter Full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to reinforce key concepts and facilitate comprehension and retention of text material
For more than three decades, Junqueira's Basic Histology has been unmatched in its ability to explain the function of cell and tissue structure in the human body. Updated to reflect the latest research in the field, and enhanced with more than 1,000 illustrations, most in full-color, the Fourteenth Edition reflects the most comprehensive and modern approach to understanding medical histology available anywhere. This well-regarded classic is distinguished by chapters focusing on the cytoplasmic and nuclear compartment of the cell, the four basic tissues that form the organs, and each organ system.
In response to reader demand, the legends are now concise, stand-alone summaries of the illustrations. Applauded for its visual appeal, Junqueira's is enhanced by full-color micrographs that comprise a complete atlas of tissue sections. These state-of-the-art micrographs highlight the important features of every tissue and organ in the human body, while full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to clarify the text and make learning easier.
