Integration of Physiological, Life-History, and Macro-Ecological Approaches for Understanding Thermal Limitation in Aquatic Insects: Implications for Freshwater Biodiversity in a Warming World

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

In this project, we test the hypothesis that temperature limits the distributions of aquatic insects through its effect on resource allocation, and that warming decreases reproduction by shunting energy away from egg production to other metabolic processes.
