This manual is designed for use in an Anatomy and Physiology course at the undergraduate level. Concise and easy-to-follow, the format gives the student ample explanation so that instructor assistance is minimized. A synopsis precedes each laboratory unit, capturing the concept and essential content to be studied. The procedure is presented in a step-by-step fashion with photographs, micrographs, tables and illustrations providing extra clarification. Lab reports following each unit are perforated for ease in grading. Each unit was chosen to provide quality laboratory experience to all students within the constraints of available resources and facilities. The material needed seldom requires fancy or expensive apparatus.
