The Lung: Development, Aging and the Environment, Third Edition provides an understanding of the multifaceted nature of lung development, aging and the environment influences of these processes. As an essential resource to respiratory, pulmonary and thoracic scientists and physicians, this book provides an interface between the "normal" and "disease" cluster of chapters, allowing for a natural complement. The interface between different lung diseases affecting the pediatric lung also adds a useful source for comparing how different lung diseases share key pathophysiological features. This same complementarity comes across in the logical line up of chapters dealing with the "normal" pediatric lung.

New research, including cell-based strategies for infant lung function, epigenetics and prenatal environmental exposure (including wildfires) on lung development and function are some of the important additions to this edition of this reference work.
