Daily temperature variation and extreme high temperatures drive performance and biotic interactions in a warming world.
We review the major patterns on the effects of daily temperature variation (DTV) and extreme high temperatures (EXT) on performance traits and the resulting outcome of biotic interactions in insects.Expand

Integrating both interaction pathways between warming and pesticide exposure on upper thermal tolerance in high- and low-latitude populations of an aquatic insect.
Global warming and chemical pollution are key anthropogenic stressors with the potential to interact. While warming can change the impact of pollutants and pollutants can change the sensitivity toExpand

Negative effects of pesticides under global warming can be counteracted by a higher degradation rate and thermal adaptation
Summary An alarming finding for biodiversity is that global warming and pesticides often interact synergistically. Yet, this synergism may not capture the full picture because two counteractingExpand

Temperature variation makes an ectotherm more sensitive to global warming unless thermal evolution occurs
To assess long-term impacts of global warming on species, there is growing interest in latitudinal intraspecific patterns in thermal adaptation. Yet, while both mean temperatures and dailyExpand

Current and future daily temperature fluctuations make a pesticide more toxic: Contrasting effects on life history and physiology.
There is increasing concern that climate change may make organisms more sensitive to chemical pollution. Many pesticides are indeed more toxic at higher mean temperatures. Yet, we know next toExpand

Temperature variation magnifies chlorpyrifos toxicity differently between larval and adult mosquitoes.
To improve risk assessment there is increasing attention for the effect of climate change on the sensitivity to contaminants and vice versa. Two important and connected topics have been largelyExpand

Increased Daily Temperature Fluctuations Overrule the Ability of Gradual Thermal Evolution to Offset the Increased Pesticide Toxicity under Global Warming.
The widespread evidence that global warming can increase species sensitivities to chemical toxicants, and vice versa, and the recent insight that thermal evolution may mitigate these effects isExpand

Using natural laboratories to study evolution to global warming: contrasting altitudinal, latitudinal, and urbanization gradients.
Demonstrating the likelihood of evolution in response to global warming is important, yet challenging. We discuss how three spatial thermal gradients (latitudinal, altitudinal, and urbanization) canExpand

Competition magnifies the impact of a pesticide in a warming world by reducing heat tolerance and increasing autotomy.
There is increasing concern that standard laboratory toxicity tests may be misleading when assessing the impact of toxicants, because they lack ecological realism. Both warming and bioticExpand

Shrinking body size and physiology contribute to geographic variation and the higher toxicity of pesticides in a warming world.
To improve current and future risk assessment of pesticides under global warming, mechanistic insights and consideration of daily temperature fluctuations (DTFs) are needed. One overlooked mechanismExpand
