In particular, the prevalence and intensity of pathogenic infection are often seasonal. This book presents evidence that. These journeys, especially those involving transmeridian flight with its concomitant jet lag, produce stress (aggravated further since September 11), crowding, air pollution, and climate change, all of which pose significant threats to our biological rhythm and exert a profound influence on our immunity and susceptibility to by: 1.

1. Author(s): Nelson,Randy Joe Title(s): Seasonal patterns of stress, immune function, and disease/ Randy J. Nelson [et al.]. Country of Publication: England. The Romero Lab at Tufts University is focused in understanding how the vertebrate stress response helps wild animals survive in their natural habitats. We are then using this knowledge to help us understand how animals cope with natural and human-created changes in their habitats. tive book on the effect of the seasons of the year on stress, immune function, and disease. The working hypothesis of this book is that human beings and animals have evolved mechanisms to predict a seasonal stressor-induced reduction in immune function, and so are able to make appropriate adjustments in anti-cipation of challenging conditions.
