There have been several types of research investigating the genetic resilience and adaptation of animals to heat stress [8][9][10][11] and Sensors , 20, 2 of 18 mitigation strategies [   Heat acclimation or acclimatization plays a large part in the body’s physical responses and overall ability to cope with heat exposure. Heat acclimation is a broad term that can be loosely defined as a complex series of changes or adaptations that occur in response to heat stress in a controlled environment over the course of 7 to 14 days.

Abstract. The problem of the acclimatization of man to heat and cold is an ancient one. However, it has attracted the most attention in the years during and since World War II for military and economic reasons. Heat acclimatization is a process of physiologic adaptation to a hot environment that occurs in both residents and visitors. The result of acclimatization is an increase in sweating, and decreased energy expenditure with lower rise in body temperature for a given workload. Only partial adaptation occurs by passive exposure to heat. • Acclimatization will be maintained for a few days after heat exposure stops, but will begin to be lost after about 1 week away from working in the heat. • After 1 month away from work in the heat, most people’s heat tolerance will have returned to baseline. Acclimatization is a process where continuous exposure of a microbial population to a chemical results in a more rapid transformation (biodegradation) of the chemical than initially observed. Bioconcentration and biodegradation are two antagonistic processes which .
