Our discussions in Chs. 12 and 13 focus on determining which environments were energetically acceptable to animals and on energetic costs of living in those environments. Similar questions apply to the study of plants and plant communities. In this chapter we are interested in the environmental factors that determine temperatures and transpiration rates, and in the factors that control carbon assimilation. The energy budget again plays the central role in these analyses.
