The Ernest Becker Reader makes available for the first time in one volume much of Becker's early work and thus places his later work in proper context. It is a major contribution to the ongoing interest in Becker's ideas."--Jacket

Significant increases in the ratio of capillary area to tissue area were found in the brain, heart, and gastrocnemius. Other organs were examined, but were so engorged with blood that normal architecture and quantitative data were unobtainable. The possible significance of this increased ratio as an important step in acclimatization is discussed
