A strikingly illustrated key to decoding anatomical terminology, with 150 terms for body parts that derive from animals, plants, objects, and more

An initiation into the mysterious subject of anatomical terminology, this book reveals the body’s secret language by explaining the close relationship between human organs and structures and the evocative names given to them by anatomists. Beautifully crafted images illustrate 150 terms derived from the animal, food, place, plant, symbol, or other object that the body structure or function clearly resembles. Complete with a guide to prefixes and suffixes, this book decodes patterns in the naming of parts throughout the human body and makes anatomical terms more memorable for medical students and practitioners. In addition to professionals, anyone interested in the history of anatomy, the structure and function of the human body, medical etymology, and the history of language will be fascinating by this engrossing, accessible, and informative book.

ONLY BOOK OF ITS KIND: As yet there are no books reflecting academic anatomy with a contemporary design. It makes anatomical language accessible and interesting not only to those with an interest in anatomy, healthcare, and popular science, but also language and etymology. Also great gift book for popular science readers.

POPULAR SUBJECT: Increased interest in fitness and health has spurred a rise in the popularity of anatomy.
