Anatomy is a science that studies the different parts of living organisms, both animals and plants. By dissection or other means, it studies the size, structure, and elements that make up a body
or plant. We can distinguish the subfield of general anatomy - which also takes into account the analysis of physiology
- from descriptive anatomy - which focuses on volume, organization, and so on. The field often referred to as surgical anatomy constitutes the detailed study of a specific region of the body.
