Junqueira's Basic Histology: Text and Atlas, c. 2013
"With this 14th edition, Junqueira's Basic Histology continues as the preeminent source of concise yet thorough information on human tissue structure and function. As with the previous edition, the book facilitates learning by its organization:
- An opening chapter reviews the histological techniques that allow understanding of cell and tissue structure.
- Two chapters then summarize the structural and functional organization of human cell biology, presenting the cytoplasm and nucleus separately.
- The next seven chapters cover the four basic tissues that make up our organs: epithelia, connective tissue (and its major sub-types), nervous tissue, and muscle.
- Remaining chapters explain the organization and functional significance of these tissues in each of the body's organ systems, closing with up-to-date consideration of cells in the eye and ear."
