Summary

Human Physiology is intended for the one-semester Human Physiology course often taken by allied health and other biology students. The beginning chapters introduce basic chemical and biological concepts to provide students with the framework they need to comprehend physiological principles. In the chapters that follow, the material promotes conceptual understanding rather than rote memorization of facts. Every effort has been made to help students integrate related concepts, and to understand the relationships between anatomical structures and their functions.
