Book Preface

Introduction to the Human Body: The Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology, 10th Edition, is designed for courses in human anatomy and physiology or in human biology. It assumes no previous study of the human body. The 10th edition continues to offer a balanced presentation of content under the umbrella of our primary and unifying theme of homeostasis, supported by relevant discussions of disruptions to homeostasis. In addition, years of student feedback have convinced us that readers learn anatomy and physiology more readily when they remain mindful of the relationship between structure and function. As a writing team—an anatomist and a physiologist—our very different specializations offer practical advantages in fine-tuning the balance between anatomy and physiology.

We have designed the organization and flow of content within these pages to provide students with an accurate, clearly written, and expertly illustrated presentation of the structure and function of the human body. We are also cognizant of the fact that the teaching and learning environment has changed significantly to rely more heavily on the ability to access the rich content in this printed text in a variety of digital ways, anytime and anywhere. We are pleased that this tenth edition meets these changing standards and offers a dynamic and engaging digital choice that supports students as they learn, collaborate, and grow in understanding and skill—WileyPLUS Learning Space.

New to This Edition

The 10th edition of Introduction to the Human Body has been updated throughout, paying careful attention to include the most current terminology in use (based on Terminologia Anatomica) and including an enhanced glossary. New or heavily revised sections on buffers and disease, cryolipolysis, epiphyseal plate, and control of breathing are included. The design has been refreshed to ensure that the content is clearly presented and easy to access. Clinical Connections that help students understand the relevance of anatomical structures and functions have been updated throughout and in some cases are now placed alongside related illustrations to strengthen these connections for students.

The all-important illustrations that support this most visual of sciences have been scrutinized and revised as needed throughout. Nearly every chapter of the text has a new or revised illustration or photograph.
