Although it is generally accepted that temperature is one of the more important factors determining the rate of biological processes for invertebrates, much remains to be investigated concerning its effect on growth and development. Amongst the Crustacea are numerous animals for which such an investigation is practicable. One such organism, readily available in almost any freshwater pond and quite easily raised in the laboratory, is the amphipod Hyalella azteca.
