Sterner, Reinhard ; Vogl, T. ; Hinz, H. J. ; Penz, F. ; Hoff, R. ; Föll, R. ; Decker, H.


Biotops with extreme temperatures such as deserts force animals to avoid or escape high temperatures by biochemical, behavioural or morphological adaptation.

Differential scanning calorimetry, light scattering, crossed ...
