Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology

Students entering advanced study of environmental physiology may have little experience in researching environmental physiology or may not realize the depth and breadth of the field. Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology offers the first complete look at the scope and major ideas of environmental exercise physiology. It provides students with a solid grounding in prominent research topics and a thorough understanding of the key concepts and current debates in the field. Using an integrative approach, Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, the first book in Human Kinetics’ Advanced Exercise Physiology series, considers the human capacity to exercise in and tolerate various environments.
