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. Readers will examine the major impact of each environment explored, and they will discover areas of current debate to stimulate further research. The text also helps students directly link the research to athletic and occupational situations in various environments. Through Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology,students will learn the following: The initial physiological responses upon exposure to an environment that a person is not adapted to How the body adapts to repeated exposure to an environment How various environments affect the ability to exercise and work Individual variability in response to stressful environments Readers will also gain a firm knowledge of the application of basic exercise physiology to specific environmental stressors by looking at the countermeasures that people can take to minimize the i

Author Biography

Stephen S. Cheung, PhD, is the Canada research chair in environmental ergonomics in the department of physical education and kinesiology at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. Dr. Cheung has published more than 45 papers in topics that span the chapters in this book, including extensive publication on hyperthermia and its effect on exercise capacity and fatigue as well as the effects of cold on manual function and marine survival. Dr. Cheung is a member of many professional organizations, including the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the Aerospace Medical Association. He serves on the executive committee of the International Conference on Environmental Ergonomics, and he graduated with honors from the prestigious International Space University in Barcelona.
