The purpose of this review is threefold: first, to examine the effects of temperature on the physical and chemical properties of natural waters (specifically waters of interest to the continental United States); second, to discuss some of the influences of the chemical changes - effected by temperature changes - on the suitability of these waters to support life; and finally, to delineate some of the effects and the underlying mechanisms of temperature changes on the cell chemistry of the aquatic biota - that is, a thermochemical perspective of the aquatic biology under possible heat stress.
