Media reviews

"Strengths of the book include an attempt to integrate data from numerous scientific disciplines, observations to support ideas, an extensive bibliography, and a clear, concise literary style. . . .Merits serious attention because it takes a multidisciplinary approach in attempting an understanding of how extreme environmental stresses have influenced the direction of evolution." --Choice
"Essential reading. . . .Ecologists particularly will benefit from understanding, and perhaps adopting, the genetic approach to studying adaptations to stress." --Ecology
"In a broad sense, any less-than-optimal aspect of the environment is a stress on the referent organism. These are the sorts of things this book is really about, and it covers them well, with a good mix of theory, natural history, and experiment." --Evolutionary Theory and Review
"A useful addition to an evolutionary biologist's library." --American Journal of Human Biology
