Principles of Anatomy and Physiology, 13th Edition (EHEP001578) cover image
The thirteenth edition of the phenomenally successful Principles of Anatomy and Physiology continues to set the standard for the discipline. The authors maintained a superb balance between structure and function and continue to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program continues to be refined and is unsurpassed in the market. The thirteenth edition is fully integrated with a host of innovative electronic media, including WileyPlus (access purchased separately.) No other text and package offers a teaching and learning environment as rich and complete.

  • Most tissue photomicrographs have been replaced with exceptionally clear photomicrographs with high magnification blowouts.
  • Illustrations in every chapter have been revised and updated providing greater clarity and more saturated colors. In particular illustrations of blood vessels, bones, and muscles have been extensively revised.
  • The use of the pedagogically designed Exhibits has been expanded to include the chapters on the axial and appendicular skeletons, and cranial nerves -- providing students with simplified presentation of complex content.
  • Clinical Connections have been thoroughly updated throughout.

  • An innovative art program of generously sized illustrations each including a key concept statement and review question -- provides a consistent learning environment enabling students to make the connection between text and visual elements.
  • A concise narrative, praised by students for its straightforward and easily comprehensible writing style, emphasizes scientific content over extraneous detail.
  • Exhibits specially designed self-contained lessons -- provide students with the extra help needed to learn the numerous structures that constitute certain body systems most notably skeletal muscles, articulations, blood vessels and nerves.
  • The duel themes of homeostasis and disruptions to homeostasis are effectively presented through the relevant use of in-chapter Clinical Connections, end-of-chapter disorder boxes, and end-of-chapter lists of medical terminology.
  • Continued coverage of scientific research and breakthroughs in understanding the human body keep the book on the cutting edge.
  • Carefully integrated learning aids, such as pronunciations, word roots, summary tables, and cross-references complement the readable narrative.
  • An extensive array of resources that facilitates the variety of teaching and learning styles.
