This book discusses in detail the consequences of global warming for ecosystems and includes commentary by distinguished scientists on many aspects of this critical problem.Compared with the barracudas, some other animals appear much less specialized in their thermal requirements (i.e., they are eurythermal) and perhaps will be less immea diately affected by any shift in thermal conditions. For example ... Estimation of the possible biological impact of global warming from information on temperatures required to produce heat injury in various animals appears difficult.
