300 pages, B/w photos, illus, figs
Segrè explores how temperature is bound up with the very essence of both life and inert matter, answering questions like: Why is the internal temperature of most mammals fixed at 98.6 degrees, no matter what climate they inhabit? What do the hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor reveal about the history of our planet? Why has temperature proved to be so much more difficult to measure than distance and time?
