This is a reference text to which teachers, graduate students, and biomedical investigators can turn for information. In molecular biology, much of the research is done on cell fractions or on cell lines that can be cultivated in vitro. While much is being learned, the assumption that cells function in the controlled environment of the culture vessel in exactly the same way that they do in the intact organism is questionable. Bloom and Fawcett serves as a valuable repository of information needed by molecular biologists when they attempt to apply their skills to the heterogeneous associations of interacting cells that make up the tissues and organs of the body. The book begins with a detailed description of the structure and function of the cell and its several organelles. This is followed by chapters on each of the basic tissues and on the organization of each of the organs. While other textbooks of histology confine themselves to coverage of the microscopic structures of tissues and organs, Bloom and Fawcett is distinguished by the inclusion of brief sections on the histophysiology of each of the organs. This book should be of interest to anatomists, cell biologists and the respective support institutions.
