Taking a science-based look at an emerging area of medicine, Adaptive Biology and Medicine: New Frontiers, Volume 3 discusses the biology of adaptation at the molecular, cellular, and system levels in response to a variety of stressful conditions. Leading international experts present a total of 37 chapters that cover a common continuum of adaptations. For easy reading, the information has been grouped under the sub-headings: Cardiovasular Adaptation, Adaptations to Changes in Altitude and Microgravity, and Environmental Stresses. Examples of cross adaptations are included where repeated exposure to one stimulus may have applications in the treatment and prophylaxis of different diseases.

Understanding disease and the mechanisms involved can help us fight disease. When you look at illness through the lens of adaptive biology you can sometimes see medical problems in a new and thought-provoking light. Offering promise for therapeutic strategies in both experimental and clinical pathology, Adaptive Biology and Medicine: New Frontiers explores a new way of thinking about physiological adaptations and their link to disease development.
