Principles of Human Anatomy, 13th Edition

ISBN: 9781118344996

Principles of Human Anatomy, 13th Edition Tortora is designed for introductory courses in human anatomy. This text provides you with an accurate, clearly written and expertly illustrated presentation of the structure of the human body. It also offers insights into the connections between structure and function and explores the practical and relevant applications of anatomical knowledge to everyday life and career development.


  • In addition to changes and improvements in the art program, there has been an extensive photo overhaul.  Co-author Mark Nielsen has increased the number and quality of cadaver images to best demonstrate the anatomical structures of all the body systems.
  • Seamless integration of Real Anatomy 2.0 with our teaching and learning platform, WileyPLUS. Real Anatomy 2.0 uses 3-D digital imaging software to allow you to dissect through numerous layers of a real human body.
  • Clinical Connections have been greatly expanded and increased in number in every chapter to provide you with the most relevant applications of the content.
