Product Description

About the Author

Victor P. Eroschenko completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of California at Davis. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Zoology in 1961. Following graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent the next three years in Germany. Eroschenko returned to the university in 1968 and received a Master of Science in Anatomy in 1970. In 1973, he was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Anatomy. That same summer, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho to teach anatomical sciences to both medical students and undergraduate students. Since 1973, Eroschenko has been team-teaching Human Gross Anatomy and Medical Histology to freshman medical students in the WAMI Medical Program. He also teaches a one-semester course in Human Anatomy and Physiology to University of Idaho undergraduate students that major in Allied Health Sciences.

Eroschenko's research interests lie in the area of Reproductive Toxicology. During his academic career, he has authored or co-authored over 40 scientific papers that were published in refereed national and international journals. He is also the author of the Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy for use with Models and Prosected Cadavers, Second Edition. He was also the editor of the 6th edition of DiFiore's Atlas of Normal Histology, and is presently the author of the Seventh and Eighth Editions of DiFiore's Atlas of Histology with Functional Correlations. Eroschenko has just completed an interactive CD-ROM disk on Human Histology, which should be published in the near future.

2.0 out of 5 stars 12 Feb. 2006
By AC - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This would make a good text for an introductory course (perhaps a second year college course), but would not be considered anywhere near superior for any type of advanced course (e.g. 400-level college course, graduate study, medical school).

The strengths of DiFore's Atlas are that it is a good blent between an atlas and a text. There are a good number of pictures as well as very concise text. The clinical correlations are a very good addition, but seems to be less and less a distinguishing factor as there has been a great shift to a clinical emphasis in the sciences.

The majority of the images in this atlas are artistic renditions (i.e. drawing) of histological sections. Therefore, you are getting the most ideal situations.

But there's the rub. The main problem with this atlas is that it predominantly drawings and not real histological samples. It would have been much better if it were around 1:1 or 1:3 drawings to images. You do not get to train yourself to identify what is background "noise" and what are actual important landmarks and cells.

I would not recommend buying this text unless you are trying to learn histology on your own outside of class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons... 30 July 2006
By Hey Dude - Published on
Format: Paperback
I used this book for medical school histology in combination with the Junqueira textbook. I liked this atlas because it is predominantly drawings and so you get to see the "ideal" appearance of things. There are lots of labels on the drawings pointing out the different features of what is being illustrated...this is very helpful and other atlases and textbooks I saw did not do as good a job with this. There is some text as well which is mildly helpful.

Other people in my medical school class used the wheater book, gartner, or strete and seemed happy. There were a few instances where I would have preferred to see a photograph instead of a drawing, but overall I was very happy with this book and would use it again. This book was particularly helpful in the "lab" portion of histology when identifying cells and tissue structures on slides.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable reference work for Histology students 16 April 2000
By Bruno Dantas - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a senior physiology/neurobiology major taking a course in histology who is fortunate enough to have a copy of Di Fiore's atlas. In fact, I have all but substituted the atlas for the course textbook. Here's why... According to Aristotle, art captures the universal essence of things. In few places have I seen the truth of this claim as clearly as in Di Fiore's Atlas. The illustrations in this remarkable atlas truly present the structural features of tissues and organs in an idealized, universal way that has helped me identify actual, imperfect samples time after time. Not only are the images of the atlas of superb quality; the text ("functional correlations") are also top-class. In fact, Eroschenko's text is what every student dreams of: a streamlined presentation of only the most relevant information, without the choppy feel of an outline. So if you are looking for a histology atlas with excellent illustrations that show the universal features of tissues and organs and a very economical, no-nonsense text, then Di Fiore's Atlas is for you!
