Among the issues explored in this text are the effects of heat, hydration, and cold in the thermal environment; diving, altitude training, and other pressure effects on the human system; and the influences that pollution and air quality have on exercise. The text also explores the microgravity (space) environment and chronobiological rhythms. The second edition includes new chapters on heat adaptation and therapy, breath-hold diving, physiological adjustments to acute hypoxia, sex differences in environmental response, and cross-adaptation.
Through Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, Second Edition, readers 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
- Countermeasures that people can take to minimize the impact of environmental stressors
Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, Second Edition, contains twice the number of figures and illustrations from the previous edition to offer better visualization and explanation of the content. New learning aids include chapter objectives, chapter summaries, and review questions to enhance reader comprehension. Sidebars throughout the text highlight lively areas of current research and debate to stimulate further investigation.
Supported by evidence-based information and numerous references, Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology, Second Edition, addresses the primary environmental factors affecting people when they are working, exercising, and competing in sport. By linking research with recommendations for real-world situations, this text serves as an invaluable resource for students and professionals alike.
AudienceText for graduate-level and upper-level undergraduate courses in exercise physiology and exercise science; reference for exercise science professionals and sports medicine specialists.

“The authors have successfully collated the most important aspects of various environmental exercise physiology and positioned it into one book. This was done through appropriate choice of information to cover, while also using exceptionally good figures/images throughout the book to help readers gain an understanding of the complex interplay at work during environmental exercise physiology.”
