Abstract
The review attempts to examine the relation between physical fitness and tolerance to heat, cold and high altitude. Work-heat tolerance for periods of two hours or less in both dry and humid heat (WBGT 33-35) is increased by physical conditioning; the benefits are less obvious for longer exposures. - Truncated.
