for Dr. Colleen McDonugh
Traditionally most lab texts and supporting multimedia provide pictures of specimens that are dissected soon after they expired. When students view specimens in a college lab, however, they are of stock which have been perserved for some time. Preservatives cause the specimen's tissue to look different from those used in traditional textbooks.
