Abstract

This editorial focuses on articles submitted to the Temperature call "Thermal Physiology in a Changing Thermal World." It highlights an array of topics related to thermoregulatory and metabolic functions in adverse environments, and the complexity and adaptability of the systems to changing climatic conditions, at various levels of body organization.

Keywords: assessment of thermoregulatory functions; brown adipose tissue and thermogenic modulators; central and peripheral thermo-modulators; evolutionary adaptation; perception in thermoregulation; systemic and molecular cross-tolerance to novel stressors.
