Abstract

This is an authoritative, well documented, extensive survey of the whole field of temperature. Of the twelve hundred and ninety-two pages of text, some two hundred and fifty are directly concerned with temperature and its regulation in man and temperature in biology. The rest of the book is concerned with the concept of temperature in the various natural sciences and in industry with quite complete discussions of theoretical points, as well as practical applications and new methods and apparatus. There are thirteen chapters, each made up of from six to fourteen papers by recognized authorities in the field, as well as an extensive appendix and an excellent author and subject index. Most papers presented have a complete bibliography up to November 1939, and there are also frequently included discussions of the paper by other authorities. The section on temperature in biology discusses such questions as the temperature limits of life,
