Media reviews
The 16 chapters are well written and thoroughly documented reviews with more than 100 references in many and a few carefully chosen tables or figures in each. A well-produced work in a series on physiological ecology, this volume should serve for years as a resource to specialists in a wide range of areas, as well as a resource for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students, their faculty, and professionals. --L.C. Davis in CHOICE (July 1999)
