    2017 Graphic Design USA RecipientUsing the cat as a model for major human body systems, Dissection Simplified: A Lab Manual for Independent Work in Human Anatomy teaches students how to learn anatomy and complete dissections, even when an instructor is not available to answer questions.

    The manual features worksheets designed to help students master the information quickly. The language and tone are student-friendly. The writing is free of unnecessary technical information and focuses instead on supporting students and walking them through the process of each exercise as they work independently. Dissection Simplified also addresses common problems students experience when completing dissections, such as locating specific muscles that are not immediately visible, knowing when a dissection exercise is truly complete, and successfully preparing for examinations on dissection. This updated edition includes more detailed pictures and images for labeling and note-taking.

    Dissection Simplified is an effective companion lab manual to standard anatomy textbooks and can be used in any lower-division general human anatomy course. It may also be suitable for high school anatomy courses that use cat dissections to study non-modeled human systems.

    Danielle Dodenhoff earned her Ph.D. in evolution, ecology, and organismal biology at Ohio State University, Columbus. Dr. Dodenhoff is a lecturer at California State University, Bakersfield where, in addition to courses in integrated science and perspectives in biology, she has taught anatomy for twenty years. She has also written and presented extensively on acoustic signals in various woodpecker species. Dr. Dodenhoff is a member of the American Ornithological Union and the Animal Behavior Society.
