Michael Angilletta earned a B.S. in Biology from the College of New Jersey and a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. Since 2000, he has been a professor at Indiana State University, where he has conducted research in ecology and evolutionary biology. This research has resulted in more than 35 scientific papers which have appeared in journals such as Ecology, Evolution, and The American Naturalist.
The author provides the toolbox researchers need while, at the same time, offering a stimulating read. * The Quarterly Review of Biology * 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 * 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 * Angilletta's enthusiam is infectious and justified - without a doubt, thermal adaptation is back on the evolutionary agenda. * Evolution *
