Fox is the best-selling text for the introductory, one-semester course in human physiology. Fox's effective approach builds upon content as students proceed further into the text. Human Physiology presents basic chemical and biological concepts as a foundation for students to comprehend physiological principles. Also famed for it's first-rate illustrations, Fox is positioned perfectly for today's student and classroom. Fox is also unique due to its brief review of anatomy preceding coverage of the corresponding body system.
