diFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations explains basic histology concepts through realistic, full-color composite and idealized illustrations of histologic structures. Added to the illustrations are actual photomicrographs of similar structures, a popular trademark of the atlas. All structures are directly correlated with the most important and essential functional correlations, allowing students to efficiently learn histologic structures and their major functions at the same time.


This new edition features:

  • Expanded Introduction on basic histology techniques and staining as well as a more comprehensive list of stains that students may encounter in their histology course
  • New chapter on cell biology accompanied by both drawings and representative photomicrographs of the main stages in the cell cycle during mitosis
  • Contents reorganized into four parts, progressing logically from Methods and Microscopy through Tissues and Systems
  • Improved art program with digitally enhanced images to provide increased detail
  • More than 40 new photomicrograph images, including light and transmission electron micrographs
  • Student Resources: Online E-book, Interactive Question Bank for chapter review, and Interactive Atlas featuring all images from the book + more than 450 additional micrographs

OVERVIEW FIGURE 21.1 ¦ The anatomy of the female reproductive organs is presented in detail, with emphasis on the ovary and the sequence of changes during follicular development, culminating in ovulation and corpus luteum formation. In addition, the changes in the uterine wall during the menstrual cycle are correlated with pituitary hormones and ovarian functions.
