Tables, flow charts and photographs of specimens and microscopic view pictures are also provided for better comprehension of the subject. This book is also designed in a colorful format, which can be easily read and comprehended. Important points and terms have been highlighted by making them bold and italic. At the end of each chapter, the must know facts are given as “Key Points” in box formats for quick recapitulation. Important multiple choice questions (MCQs) and review questions from various university examinations’ papers have been added to test and reinforce understanding of the topics by the students. The aim of the contents of the book is compact yet informative and useful for both graduate and postgraduate students.
