Why the crystalline defects are called thermodynamic defects?

At times these defects are called thermodynamic defects because the number of these defects depend on the temperature.
All magnetically ordered solids, ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic solids change into paramagnetic at high temperature.This is because of randomization of domains on heating. Each ferromagnetic substance has a characteristic temperature, above which no ferromagnetism is observed. This temperature is called curie temperature.
