We show that multiple suboptimal splice sites underlie the thermal-sensitive splicing of the period (per) 3'-terminal intron (dmpi8) from D. melanogaster, enabling this species to prolong its midday "siesta," a mechanism that likely diminishes the deleterious effects of heat during the longer summer days in temperate climates.
