Abstract : This research program has been concerned with evaluating the influence of various stressors, physiological and psychological, on man and subsequently determining the capacity of the individual to successfully adapt to these environmental influences. In the process of these investigations some 42 peer-reviewed manuscripts were published. They have dealt with the responses to exercise, cold and hot environments, hypoxia, toxicological substances, sleep and psychological stresses. The subjects for these studies have included both sexes. In general while some facets of man's adaptability have been resolved, it is clear that numerous problems remain to be investigated.
