This new textbook will compete in both the "slim" segment and the full two-semester market. It will be a briefer, less-expensive alternative for instructors who have always liked "Seeley et al's Anatomy and Physiology", but struggled with the depth of the textbook, covering all of the necessary basics of anatomy and physiology.

Dr. Philip Tate earned B.S. degrees in both mathematics and zoology and an M.S. in ecology from San Diego State University. He earned his doctorate in biological education from Idaho State University. Phil has taught anatomy and physiology to all levels of students: nursing and allied health, physical education, and biology majors. Dr. Rod Seeley holds a B.S. in Zoolgy from Idaho State University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Zoology from Utah State University. By being very involved in the methods and mechanism that help students learn, Rod contributes with his teaching expertise and proven ability to communicate effectively. Dr. Trent Stephens holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Zoology from Brigham Young University and a Ph.D. in anatomy from the University of Pennsylvania. Trent teaches human anatomy, neuroanatomy, and embryology. His skill as a biological illustrator has greatly influenced every illustration in his texts.
