In this textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals in exercise science and kinesiology, Cheung (environmental ergonomics, Brock U., Canada) surveys the scope and major ideas of environmental physiology and its application to specific environmental stressors, especially the human capacity to exercise in and tolerate different environments. He describes the thermal environment, including heat stress, hydration, cold air, and cold water; environmental pressure and altitude differences; polluted environments; the microgravity environment; and sleep and biological rhythms; and their major impact on human physiology and performance and areas of debate in the field. He incorporates application of laboratory research to athletic and occupational situations throughout. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
