The carefully revised Third Edition features expanded clinical coverage, new “Apply Your Knowledge” critical thinking questions, and a new flowchart style that makes it easier than ever for students to focus on key physiological processes.  Features such as Chemistry Review boxes provide additional resources for students who need them, while Toolboxes and Discovery boxes allow instructors the option of delving into more detail about physiology topics.


Every new copy of the book now includes the InterActive Physiology® 9-System Suite CD-ROM, which features a new module on the digestive system, as well as access to an expanded The Physiology Place website and PhysioEx™7.0 online laboratory simulations.
