The Future Of Environmental Biology And The Contribution Of Space Research

  • O. E. Reynolds


The study of living organisms removed from terrestrial influences, such as gravitational and magnetic fields and diurnal and other periodic influences, becomes possible with present space technology. For the first time, the role of these environmental conditions in the evolution, physiology and behavior of earth organisms can be evaluated by an imaginative program of research. Some of the prospects for such a program will be discussed.
