I have a list of integration limits that I would like to incorporate into
an NIntegrate[] expression.  I don't know the proper syntax for
accomplishing
this.

For example, I would like to integrate f[x,y,z] where the integration
limits
are contained in a list *limits*, expressed perhaps as
limits = {{x, 0, 1}, {y, -Infinity, Infinity}, {z, 0, 1}}.

The statement I would like to construct is

NIntegrate[f[x,y,z], {x, 0, 1}, {y, -Infinity, Infinity}, {z, 0, 1}] .

How do I remove the outer list braces for *limits* so that I can construct
this statement?
