diFiore’s Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations. Victor P. Eroschenko. Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, Philadelphia, PA; 10th edition. Histology (or microscopic anatomy) is an important discipline of the biological sciences that is concerned with the structure of tissues of organisms. Light microscopy and electron microscopy in conjunction with various histochemical and immunocytochemical staining techniques are typically used today by histologists to visualize, describe, and identify tissues. Histology is a fundamental discipline in the curriculum for medical, dental, and veterinary students as well as for allied health students and scholars interested in the field of biomedical research. All these students need to have a thorough knowledge of the structure and function of cells, tissues, and organs. Recently, I came across a histology book (diFiore’s Atlas of Histology) that I believe is worth the investment. This book provides a selection of high-quality, full-color illustrations of various tissues of the human body and is supplemented with sections of structural/functional correlations. This 10th edition is unique in that it includes a CD that contains an interactive electronic version of the histology atlas.
In preparing the 11th edition of the atlas, the author maintained its unique and traditional approach, namely, providing the student with realistic, full-color composite and idealized illustrations of histologic structures. Added to the illustrations are actual photomicrographs of similar structures. This unique approach has become a popular trademark of the atlas. In addition, all structures have been directly correlated with the most important and essential functional correlations. This approach allows the student to learn histologic structure and their major functions at the same time, without spending additional time on reference books. The images and information presented in this format in the atlas have served the needs of undergraduate, graduate, medical, veterinary, and biologic science students in numerous previous editions. The present edition continues to address the needs of present or future students of histology.
Key Features :
• All introductory chapters and all sections with functional correlations have been updated and expanded to reflect the new scientific information and interpretations.
• Each chapter is followed by a comprehensive summary in the form of an easy-to-follow outline.
• All remaining old illustrations from previous editions have been replaced with new, original, and digitized color illustrations. All other illustrations that were not originally digitized have been recolorized to improve their appearance.
• Transmission electron micrographs of skeletal muscle have been added to the muscle chapter to illustrate the details of individual muscle fibers and their sarcomeres
