Thermal physiology and the abundance and distribution of ectotherms

Principal Investigators:

John L. Sabo

Temperature and thermal physiology shape the behavior, life history and population dynamics of ectotherms from insects to reptiles. Thus, there has been considerable interest in deriving mathematical relationships between temperature and the performance and fitness of these animals. Bioenergetic models provide a method for estimating the daily available activity time of animals. Furthermore, these energetics models can now be applied at large spatial scales using GIS, to generate contour maps of the potential activity time available to a focal... more
