Di Fiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005 - Medical - 448 pages
1 Review

This atlas’s distinctive, full-color, schematic illustrations have earned lasting renown for superb explanation of basic histology concepts. This edition includes 120 newly improved illustrations; an additional nine micrographs; and a new chapter on cell biology. The atlas presents its hallmark magnification of the minutia of organ and tissue structures to show the functions of microscopic structures and how functions work. Part One explains tissues and their relationship to their systems; Part Two addresses organs in a similar way.

A brand-new electronic supplement now allows students to practice identifying structures in micrographs using a "labels on/labels off" toggle, "hotspots" (a mark on an image indicating the presence of a hidden label, ideal for self testing), and a self-test for productive learning. An instructor's version of the image bank is also available, which includes an additional 600 images not found in the book.

About the author (2005)

Victor P. Eroschenko completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of California at Davis. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology in 1961. Following graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent the next three years in Germany. Eroschenko returned to the university in 1968 and received a Master of Science in Anatomy in 1970. In 1973, he was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Anatomy. That same summer, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho to teach anatomical sciences to both medical students and undergraduate students. Since 1973, Eroschenko has been team-teaching Human Gross Anatomy and Medical Histology to freshman medical students in the WAMI Medical Program. He also teaches a one-semester course in Human Anatomy and Physiology to University of Idaho undergraduate students that major in Allied Health Sciences.

Eroschenko's research interests lie in the area of Reproductive Toxicology. During his academic career, he has authored or co-authored over 40 scientific papers that were published in refereed national and international journals. He is also the author of the Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy for use with Models and Prosected Cadavers, Second Edition. He was also the editor of the 6th edition of DiFiore's Atlas of Normal Histology, and is presently the author of the Seventh and Eighth Editions of DiFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations. Eroschenko has just completed an interactive CD-ROM disk on Human Histology, which should be published in the near future.
