Abstract

This resource is the leading reference work designed to support and challenge those involved in developmental exercise science and medicine. This paediatric sub-specialty has become firmly established as a major component of sport and exercise medicine, which is reflected by a marked increase in research activity and publication. Experimental methods pioneered with adults have been successfully adapted for use with children and new non-invasive techniques have been developed and applied to paediatric research to provide new insights into understanding the exercising child.
