The Atlas of Descriptive Histology is the most comprehensive histology atlas available. It covers all tissues and organs, each subject prefaced by introductory boxed text. Full-color high-resolution micrographs, gathered from colleagues both domestic and international, provide superb image quality. By showing images of the same area at successively increasing magnifications, the book provides students with an experience similar to that they would get from an actual microscope. Careful descriptions of each micrograph include those details a student should be able to recognize.
For the Student
Each copy of the Atlas of Descriptive Histology includes an access code that gives the student a subscription to the textbook's Companion Website. The site features a flexible image viewer that allows the student to view any of the micrographs in the book. Features of the image viewer include:
*Each micrograph from each plate in the textbook is provided separately.
*A zoom tool allows the student to view the micrograph at either low resolution or high resolution--providing greatly increased detail.
*Labels and leaders can each be displayed or hidden independently.
*A self-quiz mode allows the student to test themselves on structure identification.
*Each micrograph can be downloaded for incorporation into student notes or presentations.
For the Instructor
Instructor's Resource Library
The Atlas of Descriptive Histology Instructor's Resource Library includes multiple versions of every micrograph from every plate in the textbook, as well as an instructor version of the image viewer from the Companion Website. The IRL includes the following:
*Micrographs provided in three formats: Without leaders or labels, with leaders only, and with leaders and labels.
*All images provided as both low-resolution and high-resolution JPEGs.
*A PowerPoint presentation of all images for each chapter.
*The instructor version of the image viewer, which includes all the features described above, with the addition of a pen tool that allows drawing on the image during lecture.

The late Michael H. Ross, Ph.D. was Professor and Chairman Emeritus of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida. For almost half a century, Dr. Ross contributed to histology education not only as an author of a popular histology textbook, but an equally recognized atlas. He was also a passionate teacher and mentor of several generations of medical students, fellows, and junior faculty. His research interest was in the male reproductive system, where he pioneered studies on the blood-testicular barrier and the role of the Sertoli cell in maintaining the barrier. Upon his retirement, Dr. Ross devoted his time to new editions of his histology textbook and to bringing to fruition this color Atlas of Descriptive Histology designed for today's student.
Wojciech Pawlina, M.D. is Professor and Chair of the Department of Anatomy at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota.

His research interest in medical education is directed towards strategies to implement professionalism, leadership, and teamwork curriculum in early medical education. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the journal Anatomical Sciences Education.
Todd A. Barnash is the Computer Support Specialist for the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. Since 1993 he has been the primary information technology, information security, and digital imaging resource for the department and has collaborated with Michael H. Ross, Ph.D. as well as other faculty on numerous projects throughout his tenure at the University.
"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
