Ebook free download human biology

This version of the book does not have an access code that you need to use all the online features. If you read the description it gives you the impression that it can be used with the online resources. Typical bait and switch rip off. This is not a book, but piece of art!

I started my medicine self-studying a few years ago.

My first book was Human Biology. This 13th edition was a new one. Despite the fact that it was absolutely new field of knowledge for me, the book was surprisingly readable, understandable and even interesting. All medical terming was thoroughly explained. So even these days I use this book and many times I can found inside some missing info. Today exists 14th edition; I am intrigued what can be improved there comparison to 13th?

Dear authors! I just would like to say thank you for your great book! One person found this helpful. Supplies Verified Purchase. Printed Access Code Verified Purchase. I ordered this for my daughter and everything was perfect until she found the connect plus wasn't included. I'm not sure what it is, a keycode or cd, but she had to still purchase one from her school.

Folks need to be real careful when posting descriptions of their product.

Maybe we missed something but "Biology with Connect Plus Access Card" description would lead me to believe that we wouldn't be putting out a sizable amount of money for another "Connect Plus Access Card". Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I originally rented this book from Amazon for a college class, but ended up buying the Kindle ebook because I needed the access connect code for quizzes.

Unfortunately, that was not included with a new book. So I had to purchase the access card. Not really happy about it.

Got this for a Human Biology college course I was taking online. Book has great pictures and is very easy to understand. You'll learn a lot about your body, that's for sure! Connect is really a great system, making sure you understand what you've read and tailors tutoring tools to help you understand what you may have a hard time with.

Also, if you happen to have an Internet outage when taking a test you can go back in and finish it as long as there is time left, it's not automatically submitted, which is good as we sometimes have no control over our Internet going down! This study guide has really helped me understand difficult concepts, as well as helping improve my retention of the material.

This textbook is organized primarily by systems and it covers all 11 in 20 chapters even though the Table of Contents only lists Five chapters are predominantly discipline- or topic-focused: Chapter 1 on the Scientific Method, Chapter 2 on Each chapter has a glossary but the book lacks an index. Even though many topics generally considered to be encompassed in Human Biology are included here, the treatment of them is generally unintegrated into the larger contexts of evolutionary biology, ecology, human life cycle adaptation, and normal physiological adaptations.

Areas that are left out of this text include: Principles of Evolution chapter in which one would have desired to have a discussion of the important topic of individual variation in anatomy and physiology within populations, effects of natural selection, especially as related to health and disease, biogeography, and the origins of life and the human lineage; Development and Aging is an area that is not treated in this book, including embryogenesis, placental structure and function, the human life cycle, life span, and congenital malformations; Principles of Ecology are not touched upon here, including structure of human populations, effects of population growth, effects of air and water quality on human health, human land use and biology, and human effects of the loss of global biodiversity.

The topics that are covered can be uneven.

For example, there are in-depth details given on the Scientific Method, on Myocardial Infarction, and in lengthy topic boxes on selected careers in health care, while many applications to contemporary research issues in Human Biology, normal heart innervation in physiological adaptation, and other career options that also draw upon Human Biology are not included.

The book is authoritative and strongest in biochemistry and cell biology. It is weaker on evolutionary theory. Special Senses are not dealt with in the book until Chapter A student would find this confusing. Content is least accurate in the realm of Anatomy. There are a number of minor errors that are perhaps just more distracting than of major impact.

However, these are most noticeable in: Chapter 9 on the Heart where, for example, the legend to Figure 1 contradicts the figure by confusing the base of the heart with its apex; the three layers of the pericardium are misidentified; and the cardiac veins are misidentified as "coronary" veins confusing them with coronary arteries. Chapter 11 on the Respiratory System where, for example, the nasopharynx is incorrectly said to be flanked by the conchae they flank the nasal cavity and the laryngopharynx is said to conduct air not unless one is swallowing air.

Chapter 15 on the Reproductive System notes that a lack of testosterone leads to scrotal tissue developing into "labia" when "labia majora" should have been specified to differentiate from labia-minora-homologous hypospadias. Chapter 16 on the Skeletal System figures the "metaphysis" of long bones but leaves this important structure out of the text. Most content covered is up-to-date. One exception was the use of the old term "solar plexus" in Chapter 18 in relation to the sympathetic nervous system, but the conceptual context is appropriate and the term can be readily corrected.

The text does not deal as thoroughly with Genomics as one would like even though there are lengthy discussions of the traditional genetic topics of mitosis and meiosis and DNA replication. These sections could be revised to include more recent research findings, for example, on oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, and homeobox genes.

In general the writing is clear, concise, and accessible. There is good use of analogy to get concepts across. I thought using ATP "dollars" to pay the cell's "energy bill" was effective. Difficult concepts such as acid-base balance in Chapter 3 and glycolysis and the Krebs Cycle in Chapter 7 were well done. There is some confusion over the "levels of complexity" on which the text is based.

Figure 1 in Chapter 1 shows 6 levels but in the text 10 levels are discussed. The reader is left to ponder whether subatomic particles or atoms are the starting point, where "organelles" fit in exactly, and is there a difference between the molecular level and macromolecular level.

This problem could be addressed with a fuller discussion of how these levels historically evolved, as we now know more clearly from the molecular clock, astrobiology, and the genomic "Tree of Life" work. There are minor technical issues with text consistency. The references to figures in the various chapters vary.

Some chapters have only "figure" to designate call-outs while other chapters have numbered figures. In one case a chapter Chapter 8 had "objectives. The other chapters did not. Some chapters had a summary of what a student would learn, roughly tantamount to objectives. Others did not. Questions at the end of chapters were usually "review" questions but some chapters had "critically thinking questions.
