Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology (10th Edition)
Edwin F. Bartholomew
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
For two-semester A&P.
Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps you succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy. Every chapter of the Tenth Edition includes one- and two-page Spotlight Figures that seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide you through complex topics and processes. These highly visual presentations incorporate, for select topics, the “visual approach” that the same author team created in their Visual Anatomy & Physiology book. New Clinical Cases open every chapter and get you thinking about the chapter content in the context of a personal compelling patient story. The Tenth Edition integrates book content with MasteringA&P®, through expanded Coaching Activities, which personalize learning and coach you toward understanding and mastery of tough A&P topics.
This program presents a better learning experience. It provides:
- Personalized Learning with MasteringA&P: Engage with A&P through new Spotlight Figure Coaching Activities, and new Book-specific Clinical Case Activities, and a wide range of other question and activity types—all that are automatically graded.
- Text-art Integration: The popular one- and two-page Spotlight Figures and other figure types seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide you through complex topics and processes. You study the Spotlight Figures in the book, and then your instructor can assign them in MasteringA&P.
- Story-based Clinical Content: Motivate yourself for your future careers with the new Clinical Cases.
- Time-saving Navigation and Study Tools: Better navigate difficult A&P topics through both the book and MasteringA&P.
Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringA&P does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and¿ MasteringA&P search for ISBN-10: 0321908597/ISBN-13: 9780321908599.

bladder, various reproductive organs, and the distal (farthest) portion of the large intestine. In females, the pelvic cavity contains the ovaries, uterine tubes, and uterus. In males, it contains the prostate gland and seminal glands (seminal vesicles). The pelvic cavity also contains the inferior portion of the peritoneal cavity. The peritoneum covers the ovaries and the uterus in females, as well as the superior portion of the urinary bladder in both sexes. Organs such as the urinary bladder

in a process called autolysis (awTOL-i-sis; auto-, self). We do not know how to control lysosomal activities or why the enclosed enzymes do not digest the lysosomal membranes unless the cell is damaged. Problems in producing lysosomal enzymes cause more than 30 serious diseases affecting children. In these conditions, called lysosomal storage diseases, the lack of a specific lysosomal enzyme results in the buildup of waste products and debris that lysosomes normally remove and recycle. Affected
ion and the channel walls. p. 40 Leak channels, also called passive channels, remain open and allow ions to pass across the plasma membrane. The mechanics of diffusion through membrane channels is more complex than simple diffusion. For example, the rate at which a particular ion diffuses across the membrane can be limited by the availability of suitable channels. However, many ions, including sodium, potassium, and chloride, move across the plasma membrane at rates comparable to those for
. Exocytosis Exocytosis (ek-so-sı-TO-sis), introduced in our discussion of the Golgi apparatus, is the functional reverse of endocytosis. In exocytosis, a vesicle formed inside the cell fuses with, and becomes part of, the plasma membrane. When this takes place, the vesicle contents are released into the extracellular environment (Spotlight Figure 3–22). The ejected material may be secretory products, such as mucins or hormones, or waste products, such as those accumulating in endocytic
