Terms that people use in common speech are understood slightly differently by different people, and the meanings are always undergoing change. Check out the free Cheat Sheet for more on everything from anatomical terms to the anatomical planes of the body and more. The reason for separating the body with imaginary lines — or by making actual cuts referred to as sections — is so that you know which half or portion of the body or organ is being discussed.

Part I introduces the basics of human anatomy and physiology: the fundamental concepts of organismal biology and cell biology, some elementary terminology, and some hints about the scope and utility of anatomical and physiological knowledge. Anatomy and physiology narrow the science of biology by looking at the specifics of one species: Homo sapiens. This book is ideal for any health and social students but also for student nurses as it provides the fundamental aspects of anatomy and physiology. Human anatomy and physiology are closely related to biology, which is the science of living beings and their relationship with the rest of the universe, including all other living beings. Each of these domains is split into kingdoms, which are further divided until each individual organism is its own unique species.Biologists base their work on the assumption that every structure and process, no matter how tiny in scope, must somehow contribute to the survival of the individual. r\n\r\nYou have to have a solid grasp on the directional terms, the body cavities, and the overall organization of the organs and their division of labor. It’s entirely within the norms of evolutionary theory that people would be most interested in their own species, so more humans find human anatomy and physiology more interesting than the anatomy and physiology of the tree. For example, telling a young boy that he has the same density of hair follicles on his body as a chimp does will probably please him.

you're a student, an aspiring medical, healthcare or fitness professional, or just someone who's curious about the human body and how it works, this book offers you a fun, easy way to get a handle on the basics of anatomy and physiology. By 1900, X-rays were in widespread use for the early detection of tuberculosis, at that time a common cause of death. As such, this book abandons the old technique of learning all the anatomy and then the physiology as though the two were independent.

It’s possible that, not many years from now, almost no one will understand what people mean by those words. Other classes of the vertebrata are Pisces (fish), Amphibia (frogs), Aves (birds), and Reptilia (scaly things). Obvious details of anatomy (the presence or absence of bright green tissue) and physiology (the presence or absence of movement) tell that story.
