Abstract

The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) is committed to advancing the use of open textbooks in higher education. This textbook is a tool to support first year anatomy and physiology courses taught in Australia, aiming to provide students with an increased access to free, high-quality learning materials. The material in this textbook is largely based on OpenStax’s Anatomy & Physiology textbook, however, has been modified for Australian course curriculum. The coverage and scope of the current text includes:
1. Levels of organisation, homeostasis and nomenclature
2. Cells: structure and reproduction
3. Tissues, organs, and Systems
4. Integumentary System
5. Blood
6. Cardiovascular system
7. Lymphatic system and immunity
8. Respiratory systems
9. Muscle system
10. Skeletal system
11. Musculoskeletal system
12. Digestive system
13. Nervous system
14. Endocrine system
15. Reproductive System
16. Pregnancy and human development
17. Urinary system
