Scientific Bases of Human Anatomy: Developmental, Functional and Evolutionary Bases

  • Only text to focus on principles of body construction from their developmental, functional, comparative, and evolutionary underpinnings, rather than forcing memorization of excruciating anatomical details
  • Engagingly written by a distinguished, award-winning, and internationally renowned medical doctor, researcher, author, and educator
  • Provides an exciting alternative to "naming of the parts" books traditionally used to teach human anatomy
  • Offers a fresh, yet eminently logical organization around four key concepts: developmental bases, comparative relationships, functional adaptations, and evolution
  • Exquisitely and expansively illustrated with 100 all original photographs and special exploded diagrams highlighting important concepts
