ELF
fields
bynon-human
animals
arepresented
in
conjunctionwith
thebehavioural-biological
effects
of
maintained
expo
sure.
In
this
manner
the
distinction
between
detectability
versus
the
effect
of
ELF
signalsare
recognized.
Care
is
given
to
differentiate
the
biological
changes
possible
at
n a ~ u r a l
ELF
fieldintensities
from
those
applied
duringexperimental
settings.
Results
from
animalexperiments
arealso
presentedtodemonstrate
some
ofthe
significant
physiological
and
biochemicalchanges
associated
with
ELF
magnetic
field
exposures.
Speculation
on
the
fundamental
role
of
ELF
magnetic
fields
in
the
phylogeny
of
life
forms
is
presented
in
thechapter
concerned
with
abiogenesis.
The
conclusion
integrates
thechapters
and
points
outthe
applicability
ofexperimentally
collected
data
to
naturally
occurring
phenomenaand
suggests
general
approaches
forfuture
research.
