Most of the biological activity takes place at a temperature range of 10 to 35 degree Celsius. Increase in temperature beyond 35 degree enhances the physiological activities and further increase results in the degradation and denaturation of many enzymes hence the biological activities come to a standstill and the organism would even die of heat shock. If the temperature decreases, the metabolic ......
