Operating potential is the physiological key to knowing man's skill, in technically much less complicated groups, to use his surroundings, and therefore to knowing his function within the ecological stability. during this quantity the data of operating potential in tropical populations is reviewed in a sequence of illustrative papers. subject matters disguise the size of operating means in populations: the practical effects of malnutrition; progress, dimension and muscular potency; ethnic alterations in operating ability; power; expenditure and endemic disorder; and effort stream in tropical ecosystems. those papers and their resulting discussions result in a chain of tips on stories to be included within the Decade of the Tropics learn programme of the foreign Union of organic Sciences.
