1. In the past decades, nocturnal temperatures have been playing a disproportionate role in the global warming of the planet. Yet, they remain a neglected factor in studies assessing the impact of global warming on natural populations. In ectotherms, physiological performance is influenced by thermal conditions and an increase in body temperature of a few degrees during night-time is sufficient to induce a disproportionate increase in metabolic expenditure. 2. Here, we question whether an intense...
