The evolution of the human extremophile

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 2/3/2020

Description

In The evolution of the human extremophile, Dr Nathan Smith argues that humans are in fact extremophiles – organisms able to survive and thrive in the harshest conditions. And if we are to adapt again, we must turn to look at the lives of adventurers, explorers, and those already living at the edges of life. We need to study their habits and abilities as closely as we would study microbes in a petri dish if we are to unlock the ultimate potential of human performance and survive in the new world we have created.
