It is interesting to note that two of the largest MFCL values for terrestrial systems came from food webs that reported only ectotherms
(WEB151 and WEB311, additional information on these WEBs are available on-line at http://waynerossiter.
How rearing temperature affects optimal adult size in ectotherms
Unlike most cold-hardy ectotherms
that survive exposure to subzero temperatures by either tolerating freezing or remaining supercooled, hatchling C.
In this paper, we present a simple temperature-based biophysical model with the goal of predicting relevant life-history events of ectotherms
Although Bergmann's rule was originally proposed for homeotherms, Bergmannian (and converse Bergmannian) clines occur in invertebrate and vertebrate ectotherms
(Ray 1960; Masaki 1967, 1978; Honek 1993; Atkinson 1994; Mousseau 1997; Arnett & Gotelli 1999; Brisola Marcondes et al.
5) were consistent with a number of biologically plausible food webs: vertebrate ectotherms
as predator and consumer (body size ratio of 12:1), invertebrate ectotherms
as predator and consumer (12:1), and a vertebrate ectotherm
predator and an invertebrate ectotherm
They suggested evaluating a lizard's thermal preference using several indices to address the separate components of the complex question of "How carefully does an ectotherm
The temperature-sensitive nature of ectotherm
growth rates compounds the need for accurate growth estimates given current and predicted future global temperature increases (Rountrey et al.
life history responses to developmental temperature, p.
Plethodontid salamanders do not confirm to "general rules" for ectotherm
life histories: insights from allocation models about why simple models do not make accurate predictions.
Using stochastic sampling of model parameters, we analyze the sensitivity of this model to uncertainties in parameter values, describe the factors that are most important in governing the radionuclide kinetics in this species, and discuss those likely to be of importance in modeling the contamination kinetics of ectotherm
Milne Edwards, 1837) is a sublittoral ectotherm
with a limited homeostatic ability to adapt to rapid environmental changes.
