Introductory text for freshman to junior level students in human or animal physiology. The unique integrated approach helps students see the “big picture.” Silverthorn's problem-centered focus develops students' critical thinking and problem-solving skills by helping them connect facts and concepts and apply them to real-world situations. An emphasis on the changing nature of scientific knowledge includes chapter by chapter integration of the latest research in cellular and molecular biology. Each chapter presents physiology as a dynamic field with numerous unanswered questions that merit further investigation.

"I am so pleased to finally find a text that uses an educational approach, rather than a spewing of abstractions. I don't, by the way, give out compliments to textbook authors often. She just hit my philosophy and has turned out what I think is an exceptional learning tool."— P.K. Hidy, Central Texas College
"I liked the way you explained how to read a graph in your first chapter. It is really interesting as I was just talking to [a colleague] about this very think."— Jack H. Wilmore, Texas A&M University
From the Back Cover:
"I think [Human Physiology] is easy to read without being condescending and I like all the chain links and everything else you included to make it easier to find specific information."— Paul Skavland, Hampshire College
"Physiologists," says the author, "are the children throwing rocks into a pond. The children want to see what kind of splash the rocks make upon entering the water, but they also want to know where the ripples go and what happens when one ripple encounters another."
This sense of wonderment and exploration that fuels Dee Silverthorn's interactive, case-oriented classes has given birth to the second edition of her innovative text, Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach. As in the first edition of her text, Silverthorn goes beyond simply presenting the material—she asks her readers to experience physiology and understand the themes that drive the complexities of our bodies.
