Lecture 18 Goals Part I: INDIVIDUAL TEMPERATURE RELATIONS Be able to: Predict how local landscape features will modulate macroclimate to produce microclimatic variation. Identify optimal growth temperature from optimal growth curves. Infer characteristics of an organism’s natural habitat from its growth curve. Sketch an optimal growth curve based on information on minimum, maximum, and optimum growth temperatures, or on its natural habitat. Distinguish between environmental adaptation and acclimation by organisms. Identify and explain the components of organismal heat budgets. Explain mechanisms by which plants regulate temperature in both hot and cold climates. Identify and explain animal behaviors that help regulate their temperature. Identify an organism’s thermal neutral zone, and relate this to the species’ geographic range. Explain linkages among the above. Reading: Chapter 5. Introduction.
