Abstract/Summary Global climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity, therefore understanding and determining how organisms will respond to potentially rapid environmental change is becoming increasingly important. The impact of climate change is likely to operate at all levels of biological organisation: from the genome, to biochemical and physiological function; to organismal performance, and to the maintenance of ecosystem services and biodiversity. The challenge ahead for biologists is to predict how organisms will respond and adapt to climate change. To this end, the emerging field of conservation physiology [Wikelski, M. and Cooke, S.J. (2006). Conservation physiology. Trends in Ecol. & Evol. 21, 38–46.] will feature more prominently in future studies and will assist in helping to determine the likely impacts of climate change on organisms. Determining what physiological parameters to measure will be critical as will assessing the genotypic and phenotypic thermal plasticity of organisms. Such information will be important in order to predict the likely implications for loss of biodiversity and all the associated cascading effects. Copyright © 2008 Published by Elsevier Inc.
