Essential Atlas of Physiology.
Barron's guide to the human body offers clear color drawings and descriptions of organ and system functions of female and male. Detailed schematics of digestion, nutrition and absorption of fats, blood types, and gland function contribute to the uses of the text for homework, science projects, and home schooling. It also supplies answers to questions about health, such as causes of glycemia, skin disorders, hiccups, and bedwetting. Indexing and thumb tabs enhance ease of use. One serious limitation of the text is the coverage of reproduction without commentary or illustration of pregnancy. Cautiously recommended. Mary Ellen Snodgrass, Hickory, NC
J--Recommended for junior high school students. The contents are of particular interest to young adolescents and their teachers.
S--Recommended for senior high school students.
