Text Atlas

The microscopic study of animal tissues and cells

Histology Text-Atlas Book

The concise, illustrated Visual Histology Text Atlas by Moran & Rowley, was originally published in “hard copy” where it was a best-seller. An excellent preview and review of histology, it is now available to use in conjunction with the Moran & Rowley Histology Series. Some significant points: The Atlas has a glossary hyperlinked to the text. When you encounter an histologic term that is italicized, click on it and the glossary definition will appear! All images are expandable for better recognition.
The Chapters in the Atlas correspond closely to the 26 online video course programs in the Visual Histology Series. The same content is also presented in the affordable online histology subscriptions as well as Annual Site Licenses for University and Institutions.
Use the Visual Histology Text-Atlas for online review of course materials before exams in conjunction to the WATCH NOW online subscription.  It it is now a available for FREE online using the Chapter links below.
