Field Guide to Histology

by John Cummings

Print ISBN: 978-1-68135-481-1

Help flip the histological components of your laboratory. When students use this “field guide” to identify unknown samples, they are quickly able to differentiate sources based on similar traits and appearance. When used in conjunction with their lab manual or textbook, the names of the differentiating characters they used are then learned, lessening confusion and improving mastery. Students learn the way they learn, not the way the instructor learns.

Outstanding Features:

  • Full-color images of cells, tissues, and organs common to the Anatomy and Physiology laboratory.
  • Allows students to quickly reference topics such as epithelial, nervous, connective tissues, muscles, and organs.
  • Images presented at magnifications typically used in the laboratory. Many images presented at multiple magnifications. This helps guide students to know which power they should be using in class.
  • Convenient and practical resource for students.
