About this book

Temperature impacts the behaviour, physiology and ecology of all organisms more than any other abiotic variable. In this book, the author draws on theory from the more general discipline of evolutionary ecology to foster a fresh approach toward a theory of thermal adaptation.

Media reviews
Angilletta's enthusiam is infectious and justified - without a doubt, thermal adaptation is back on the evolutionary agenda. Evolution This book is broad in scope and far-reaching in its implications; every forward-thinking ecologist with some theoretical aptitude should consider what it offers. Bulletin of the British Ecological Society I recommend this fascinating book without hesitation to anyone with an interest in thermal biology. Michael Angilettas book is a delightful read and provides an interesting and detailed account of current knowledge in thermal biology. Students and researchers alike will find the volume useful and interesting and it should be an important, if not indispensable, introductory volume and reference for years to come. Integrative and Comparative Biology The author provides the toolbox researchers need while, at the same time, offering a stimulating read. The Quarterly Review of Biology
