Escargots cooked just right: telling apart the direct and indirect effects of heat waves in freashwater snails

First, measurements of day-to-day temperatures are relatively feasible and accessible, and predictions regarding the expected trends in Earth surface temperature are probably some of the most reliable we have. It appears quite clear, in particular, that beyond the overall increase in average tempera...
