Abstract : One of the most distressing aspects of modern day civilization is its inherent technological and sociological change. Indeed, today's changes come upon us so quickly it is nearly impossible for persons to anticipate these conditions and to adequately prepare themselves. Examples of such abrupt changes are the recent restrictions on fuel and water usage. Studies of the adaptative potential of humans to environmental changes are urgently needed for the welfare of this and future generations. A model is described for life change and its tolerance has been derived from the research of the author as well as others working this area. The model serves to categorize five areas of potential future research in the field of stress tolerance.
