'Histology: A Text and Atlas' has long been a favorite among medical, dental, and health sciences students. This combination text and atlas includes a standard textbook description of histologic principles, fully supplemented by vividly informative illustrations and photos. Separate atlas sections composed of two-page atlas plate and legend layouts follow most chapters. Each features large-format labeled histology plates with detailed legends that highlight details of microanatomy. It includes updated cell and molecular biology content that reflects the latest progress in the field and helps students form a complete understanding of the subject of histology. Based on reviewers' suggestions, new information on the cell cycle and its regulation is also included. New and updated illustrations provide greater clarity and conceptual focus. Additionally, structures are colored consistently throughout the book, creating a color code that serves as a visual memory tool. Clinical Correlations and Functional Considerations boxes have been updated and improved. These boxes highlight the functional impact of histology as well as its clinical significance. New digital photomicrographs have been added to help illustrate and reinforce clinical correlations. Chapters begin with an outline of major headings to help students preview chapter content and study more efficiently. More tables are included to help students review material without strict memorization. A review table of the most common stains and their characteristics in tissues is now included on the inside back cover of the book. References to the atlas plates are incorporated within text chapters, allowing students to correlate material with additional images at the end of the chapter. A new internal design enhances text, illustrations and photographs. Navigating the text is now easier and more logical than ever before.
