Frederic (“Ric”) Martini, joined by accomplished educator, award-winning teacher, and co-author Judi Nath, has substantially revised Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology to make the Ninth Edition the most readable and visually effective edition to date. New Spotlight figures integrate brief text and visuals for easy reading. The Ninth Edition is supported by Practice Anatomy Lab™ (PAL™) 3.0 and MasteringA&P™.

Award-winning art and photo program:
- Side-by-Side Figures provide students with multiple views of the same structure, typically pairing an artists drawing with a cadaver photograph taken by renowned biomedical photographer Ralph Hutchings. This approach allows students to compare the illustrators careful rendering to a photo of the actual structure as it might be seen in the laboratory or operating room.
- Step-by-Step Figures break down multifaceted processes into step-by-step illustrations that coordinate with the authors narrative descriptions. These easy-to-follow sequences in the book are also featured on the Instructor Resource DVD (IR-DVD) with a Step Edit function that makes it easy for instructors to present the material in classroom presentations.
- Macro-to-Micro Figures help students to bridge the gap between familiar and unfamiliar structures of the body by sequencing anatomical views from whole organs or other structures down to their smaller parts. A typical illustration might combine a simple orientation diagram (indicating where an organ or structure is located in the human body) with a large, vivid illustration of that organ or structure, a corresponding sectional view, and a photomicrograph.
- Illustration-over-Photo Figures bring depth and dimensionality to the page and ensure that the illustrated structures are visually proportional in size to the human body.
Time-saving navigation and study tools:
- Learning Outcomes on each chapter-opening page indicate to students what they should be able to do after studying the chapter. These Learning Outcomes are coordinated by number to the chapter headings, allowing students to check their understanding by both Learning Outcomes and chapter topics. Additionally, the assessments in MasteringA&P are organized by these Learning Outcomes, allowing instructors to assign homework by Learning Outcomes, assess understanding by Learning Outcomes, and demonstrate teaching results by Learning Outcomes.
- Full-sentence chapter headings do more than introduce new topics: They state the core fact or concept that will be presented in the section. These numbered chapter headings are directly correlated to the numbered Learning Outcomes found on the chapter-opening page, making it easy for students to see, navigate through, and learn the chapter content.
- Checkpoints are located at predictable points throughout the chapter and close out each major topic. Each Checkpoint checks student understanding of important facts and/or concepts according to what students most need to remember from the section in the chapter. The Checkpoints reinforce the Learning Outcomes listed on the chapter-opening page, resulting in a systematic integration of the Learning Outcomes over the course of the chapter. Students can check their understanding of the Checkpoint questions against the answers located at the end of the book.
- Tips & Tricks boxes are brief and concrete learning tools that give students simple analogies and easy memory devices to help them remember facts and concepts.
- Concept Links, signaled with blue arrow icons, alert students to material that is related to, or builds upon, previous discussions. Each link refers students to a page number for quickly reviewing the relevant material from an earlier chapter.
- End-of-chapter 3-level learning system helps build student confidence and understanding through a logical progression from factual questions (Level 1) to conceptual problems (Level 2) to analytical exercises (Level 3). The variety of questions also gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework from the text.
- The MasteringA&Preference at the end of every chapter shows students which MasteringA&P resources can help them review key chapter material on their own. Within the MasteringA&P box are references to chapter-specific material, including MP3 Tutor Sessions, Interactive Physiology® 10-System Suite (IP-10) tutorials, and A&P Flix 3-D animations.
- Clinical Notes appear within every chapter, expand upon topics just discussed, and present diseases and pathologies along with their relationship to normal function. These Clinical Notes relate directly to what students will encounter in their future careers.
- Related Clinical Terms appear at the end of every chapter and present additional clinical terms and definitions relevant to the chapter topic.
Dr. Frederic (Ric) Martini received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in comparative and functional anatomy for work on the pathophysiology of stress. He is the lead author of nine undergraduate texts on anatomy and physiology or anatomy. Dr. Martini is currently affiliated with the University of Hawaii at Manoa and has a long-standing bond with the Shoals Marine Laboratory, a joint venture between Cornell University and the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Martini is now a President Emeritus of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) after serving as President-Elect, President, and Past-President over 2005-2007. Dr. Martini was a member of the HAPS committee that established the course curriculum guides for A&P.
Dr. Judi L. Nath is a biology professor at Lourdes College, where she teaches anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology, and pharmacology. She received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from Bowling Green State University and her Ph.D. from the University of Toledo. Dr. Nath is devoted to her students and strives to convey the intricacies of science in a captivating way that students find meaningful, interactive, and exciting. She is a multiple recipient of the Faculty Excellence Award, granted by the college to recognize her effective teaching, scholarship, and community service. She is active in many professional organizations, notably the Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS), where she has served several terms on the board of directors.
