Description

Reviews

Fundamentals of Space Life Sciences is the first comprehensive teaching text to be published in the space life sciences. Designed primarily to support coursework at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels, this two-volume set is also a state-of-the-art reference text for those desiring a broad overview of the space environment, response of living systems to spaceflight, psychosocial issues of spaceflight, and life support systems. Of particular interest is Section II: Response of Living Systems to Spaceflight. In this section, each chapter is organized to provide both a functional introduction to the physiologic system under consideration and a discussion of how spaceflight affects that system. Unlike previous treatments of the space life sciences, Fundamentals has relied primarily on the academic community engaged in space-related research for its material. As noted by Dr. Heinz Oser, chief life scientist, ESA, in the Foreword, "This book deserves a wide use. I am convinced that it fulfills its intended goal to educate the coming generation appropriately such that it will further life sciences research in space on a well-informed basis.

"… it presents a good survey of the importance of this area in space science, written by competent individuals who have contributed to the progress of the field." -- A. M. Strauss, Vanderbilt University, Choice, September 1997.
