Atlas of Descriptive Histology
Read the review from Clinical Anatomy. (PDF)
“The basic idea is to present excellent illustrations of histological sections through all kinds of tissue and combine this with a careful labeling and a minimum of additional text. … The entire layout and the explaining text show that the authors carefully thought about their readers. A special addition and, in my view, the strength of the book is its accompanying website. … More offers for interactive learning are hard to imagine. In summary, the Atlas of Descriptive Histology is a modern book for lecture and research, combining print and online media. The authors and the publisher did produce a volume for the users, a fact that sounds trivial, but is not.”
—Andreas Schmidt-Rhaesa, The Quarterly Review of Biology
“The Atlas of Descriptive Histology should be on the desks of all students who need a comprehensive, easy-to-follow color atlas of histology.”
—Michelle Mo, Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
