Summary
Abstract: Evolutionary theory predicts that specialisation to a narrow set of environmental conditions will lead to a decreased capacity for phenotypes to change in response to environmental variability. This study tested this hypothesis by determining the thermal plasticity of the Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki. Fish were acclimated to either -1°C or +4°C for at least 4 weeks. Fish were exercised ... View entire text
