Michael J. Angilletta Jr.
Reviews and Awards
Winner of The Marsh Book of the Year 2009, presented by the British Ecological Society
"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 Angiletta's 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
"Angilletta draws upon both classical work and the latest research to successfully provide a one-stop shop for everything from descriptive studies to selection experiments, game theory, optimality modeling, and quantitative genetics. It is the concise, balanced, and seemingly effortless manner in which this is achieved that makes this rather slim volume appealing."--Quarterly Review of Biology
