Thermal adaptation in the lizard Cordylus oelofseni
The content of these datasets were used to produce my MSc thesis, regarding the thermal adaptation and responses of physiological and behavioural traits in the lizard Cordylus oelofseni (an endemic lizard with a highly ...
The upper thermal tolerance of marine invertebrates at several hierarchical and geographical scales
The upper thermal tolerance of marine amphipods and isopods from South Africa and Marion Island. Animals were acclimated to low, average and high sea water temperatures and upper thermal tolerance was determined using a ...
Examining the relative contributions of latitudinal variation and phenotypic plasticity to thermal tolerance in arthropods
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing biodiversity today. To understand the responses of ectothermic organisms to increasingly variable climates, it is essential that we understand the patterns of variation ...
