Summary

Summary

The human body--with all of its parts, organs, and functions--is shown in detailed, scientifically correct full-color illustrations. Fifteen separate sections examine both male and female bodies as follows: Human cell structure... General anatomical features ... Skeleton and musculature ... Digestive system ... Respiratory system ... Circulatory system ... Blood ... Lymphatic system ... Nervous system ... Sensory organs ... Urinary system ... Genital organs ... Human reproduction ... Endocrine system ... Immunological system. Hundreds of illustrations make this book a handy home reference, as well as a fine supplement to school science textbooks.
