[Extract] It is well understood that a distinct relationship exists between temperature and most biological processes. This is especially evident in ectothermic (sometimes called cold-blooded) animals, whose body temperature closely tracks the temperature of their environment. Interesting trends have come from laboratory studies where temperature can be held constant and controlled tightly. For example, elevating the temperature of a lizard's nest can speed up embryonic development, but whether this is ecologically relevant is not known.
