Wheater's Functional Histology: A Text and Colour Atlas

by P.R.Wheater (Author), H.GeorgeBurkitt (Editor)


Histology, the microscopic study of cells, their mechanisms and their interrelationships, represents an important part of any medical or biological course and is taught during a medic's pre-clinical years. Wheater's "Functional Histology" is internationally renowned as one of the leading student texts on this subject, as it contains the right balance of essential information with illustrations enabling it to stand alone as a core text. Wheater's "Functional Histology" is regarded as a key core textbook for this widely studied subject. Although principally of value to medical students, the clear, concise text, diagrams and detailed clinical photographs make it a study aid suitable for student dentists, trainee nurses and allied health specialists, vets, biologists, physiologists, zoologists and other laboratory specialists. Each chapter begins with a short introduction which lays a solid foundation of knowledge for the student to build on; the beautiful collection of high-quality illustrations, the majority in full colour, which follow are complemented by extended captions detailing the essential information that the student requires. Key features: the latest edition, completely updated, of an immensely popular and successful book; one of Churchill Livingstone's top selling titles; superbly illustrated with more and better electron micrographs; more examples of recently developed staining techniques, including immunocytochemistry; presents the facts in a highly accessible form which students find easy to learn from; the perfect blend of text and pictures to stand alone as a core text, with all the essential information contained in one source. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available
