Phenotypic plasticity in temperature stress resistance is triggered by photoperiod in a fly

Abstract

Temperature variation poses a substantial challenge for individual survival and reproductive success, warranting effective means to counter negative effects of temperature extremes. Phenotypic plasticity offers a particularly powerful mechanism to cope with short-time temperature fluctuations. While temperature-induced plasticity in thermal tolerance has… (More)
