About this book

Working capacity is the physiological key to understanding man's ability, in technically less advanced communities, to exploit his environment, and hence to understanding his role in the ecological balance. In this volume the knowledge of working capacity in tropical populations is reviewed in a series of illustrative papers. First published in 1988.

Contents

1. Measurement of working capacity in populations; 2. Functional consequences of malnutrition; 3. Growth stature and muscular efficiency; 4. Ethnic and socio-cultural differences in working capacity; 5. Energy expenditure and endemic disease; 6. Research models in tropical ecosystems.
