Low temperature biology of insects [E-Book] / edited by David L. Denlinger, Richard E. Lee, Jr.
Low temperature is a major environmental constraint impacting the geographic distribution and seasonal activity patterns of insects. Written for academic researchers in environmental physiology and entomology, this book explores the physiological and molecular mechanisms that enable insects to cope...
