|The purpose of this Histology Atlas is to help biologists become familiar with the microscopic structure of cells, tissues and organs. It presents a collection of about six hundred light-microscopic images accompanied by fifty-nine explanatory drawings. These illustrations and their brief descriptions are grouped into eighteen chapters.
This Histology Atlas is presented as a complement to histology lectures and to examination of tissue sections with the optical microscope. Reference to textbooks is also essential, allowing students not only to observe and analyze light-microscopic images but also to examine images collected by means of the electron microscope and to gather information on histophysiology. All this material constitutes the basis of cell, tissue and organ biology. The Histology Textbooks page lists recommended textbooks.
