Overview

About the Product

The only title written for Canadian pre-health courses, Human Biology, Anatomy, and Physiology for the Health Sciences focuses on human-related biology topics such as cells, metabolism, evolution, and inheritance, as well as the physiological systems. This popular text has been updated to include coverage on nutrition, sensory system, the effects of aging, and lab activities that can be completed online or in any lab. Class-tested, this text has been praised by students as clear, concise, and easy to understand. Author Wendi Roscoe has taken care to write a book that is truly engaging and relevant for students, using examples of diseases or conditions that help students understand how normal physiology can go wrong, while not compromising the depth and breadth of content required for an introductory course.

Features

  • Medical Terminology in select end-of-chapter sections (previously in Appendix)

  • Labelling Activities in select end-of-chapter sections get students to identify parts of a diagram (previously in Appendix)

  • Engaging Did You Know? boxes help students connect the information they already know with new information presented in the text.

  • Illustrative graphics and images throughout the text are effective to help explain concepts.

  • Concept Review questions after every chapter section help reinforce learning in digestible chunks.

  • Contains relevant topics for introductory healthcare programs that are not found together in general biology texts or in anatomy and physiology texts.

Reviews

“I would describe [Human Biology] as a suitable text for any college that is part of the pre-health sciences MOU. I would recommend it because it is a thorough and well-written resource for students. [Human Biology] is a good mix of general biology, biochemistry, and anatomy and physiology for students that have varying levels of prior knowledge and different interests in biology.”
— Kari Draker-Fortis
