1 Review
Centered around the health of the human female throughout the lifespan, Biology of Women continues to provide a basic framework upon which health related issues can be discussed. Now in its fourth edition, the text remains unique due to its biological depth for medical professionals with the readability for non-major students. A woman’s reproductive life and psychological issues are covered, as well as an examination of the sociological and cultural factors that influence a woman’s nutrition and physical activity. New pedagogical features to this edition include case studies, glossary of terms, controversial treatment options, and historical perspectives.
