Dubos, R. Man adapting
René J. Dubos. Man adapting
"The dominant theme of the present book,” in Professor Dubos’ own words, “is that the states of health or disease are the expression of the success or failure experienced by the organism in its efforts to respond adaptively to environmental challenges.”
René Dubos illustrates his thesis with examples from many fields of research. He also emphasizes certain aspects of his current interest, the microbiota of the digestive tract, because it provides strikingly clear models of the relationship between man and his physiochemical and biological environment. Tables and figures supplement the text.
