There's now a substantial literature on chemical ecology, which had its beginnings within the research of insect pheromones. This starting used to be attainable basically through combining the disciplines and methods of biology and chemistry. For a biologist, it's obscure the time­ frames of analytical and artificial chemistry.

The upper limit for TMAX serves to estimate the point at which respiration begins to outweigh production or at which some form of metabolic collapse may occur. This is especially important for plants adapted to cooler environments. Lower limits for TMIN specify minimum mean temperatures which can be tolerated and provide some estimate of the lowest tolerable absolute temperatures. Upper limits represent low temperatures which may be required to induce dormancy and vernalization in seasonal plant types.

E. g. unattained) limiting values. The values are to some extent context-dependent and may not be accurate if applied individually. g. monsoonal) and more commonly occurring limiting values (especially for PMTMAX). The estimates of limiting values were derived by iteration using the ECOSIEVE-generated world distributions implied by particular sets of limiting values. The accuracy of the limiting values can best be assessed by referring to the predicted world life-form distributions (Maps 10-22), the predicted results for 74 independent validation sites (Tables 14 and 15, plus Appendices C and D), and the predicted results for 100 potentially well known sites from the world data-base (Appendix B).
