Numerous animal species dwell in environments characterised by means of a seasonal relief within the availability of water, which regularly yet now not consistently happens whilst temperatures are maximum. for lots of such animals, survival through the hardest season calls for spending lengthy sessions of time in a slightly inactive kingdom referred to as aestivation. yet aestivation is way greater than ultimate inactive. winning aestivation calls for the choice of a formal microhabitat, variable levels of metabolic arrest and responsiveness to exterior stimuli, the facility to feel the right kind time of 12 months for emergence, the maintenance of inactive tissue, and masses extra. So, aestivation includes a posh selection of behaviors, ecological institutions and physiological alterations that change throughout species of their variety, value and direction. This ebook seeks to discover the phenomenon of aestivation from various views and degrees of association, starting from microhabitat choice to genetic keep watch over of physiological changes. It brings jointly authors from the world over engaged on varied systematic teams, techniques, and questions, yet who're all eventually operating to higher comprehend the complicated factor of aestivation.
