Temperature adaptation in a changing climate : nature at risk /

This book contains 16 chapters dealing with the impact of global climate change on non-human life on Earth, particularly on the effects of global warming on species that currently depend on cool or cold conditions for survival. These organisms include insects, freshwater and marine invertebrates, ma...
