Gondwanan mesotherms and cosmopolitan eurytherms: effects of temperature on the development and survival of Australian Chironomidae (Diptera) from tropical and temperate populations.
This hypothesis has recently been challenged for Antarctic stenotherms (Clarke & Johnston 1999, Peck & Conway 2000), but it has been reemphasized in comparative studies of temperate and subpolar, Northern hemisphere eurytherms (Portner 2002a, Portner 2004).
