A new edition of the leading reference work for all those working in developmental exercise science and medicine The content draws on the latest research, to provide an evidence-based guide, with details of original sources and references for further reading Chapters are cross-referenced where appropriate, giving easy access to complementary/more in-depth information across the book Each chapter concludes with a bulleted summary so that the main points can be quickly identified

New to this edition Part 5 is now focused on the Elite Young Athlete, with new chapters on the development of the young athlete, hormonal responses and adaptations, aerobic training, and maximal intensity and strength training New chapters have been added on ethics in paediatric research, field tests of performance, growth and maturation, exercise metabolism, and gene-physical activity interactions

Now in its second edition,Paediatric Exercise Science and Medicine is the leading reference work designed to support and challenge those involved in developmental exercise science and medicine. Since the publication of the first edition, the paediatric sub-specialty has become firmly established as a major component of sport and exercise medicine and this 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. Incorporating the latest research from established, internationally recognized authors and new contributors who have emerged as leading researchers since the publication of the first edition, each chapter has been comprehensively updated to reflect evidence-based advances in knowledge. The book is extensively cross-referenced to promote access to complementary material and each chapter ends with a bulleted summary to support the rapid identification of key issues.

Readership: Researchers, postgraduate students and final year undergraduates in sport and exercise science, those working in sports medicine, paediatrics, health education /promotion, human biology, physiology, and physiotherapy.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
