Anatomy (from the Greek word anatome,”dissection”), is a branch of natural science dealing with the structural organization of living things. It is an old science, having its beginnings in prehistoric times. For centuries anatomical knowledge consisted largely of observations of dissected plants and animals. The proper understanding of structure, however, implies a knowledge of function in the living organism. Anatomy is therefore almost inseparable from physiology, which is sometimes called functional anatomy. As one of the basic life sciences, anatomy is closely related to medicine and to other branches of biology.
Anatomycorner is a sister-site to biologycorner.com. Some of the resources on this site may be the same or similar to resources found at biologycorner.com. This site is devoted to compiling human anatomy resources for both students and teachers of anatomy. Worksheets, notes, quizzes and power point presentations can be found on the “Anatomy Topics” menu. Resources are developed for high school anatomy but could be modified to work for younger students or college-age students.
