In such a transient, large population, size increases the rate and effectiveness of adaptive responses.
We hypothesized that correlations would be higher for mean winter temperatures (January in the Northern Hemisphere and July in the Southern Hemisphere) than for mean summer temperatures.
They contend that greater intelligence is needed to adapt to a colder climate so that, over many generations, the more intelligent members of a population are more likely to survive and reproduce.
Their temperature and IQ analyses have been descriptive rather than quantitative, however.
