Enhancement of chronic acceleration tolerance by selection
Author and Affiliation:
Smith, A. H.(California, University, Davis, CA, United States)
Abstract: A review is presented of experiments concerning the physiological consequences of chronic acceleration and of studies of selection for acceleration tolerance over many generations. It is shown that acceleration selection is effective in improving chronic acceleration tolerance. However, it is determined that the variable selection procedure employed in developing this acceleration-tolerant line limits the confidence in the quantitative evaluation of the procedure.
