Spot size, distance and emissivity errors in field applications of infrared thermography

Infrared thermography is increasingly emerging as an analytical approach within the thermal ecology research community, providing unique and rapid temperature information crucial to understanding how

Extreme thermal heterogeneity in structurally complex tropical rain forests

Most terrestrial species on Earth are ectothermic and track temperature at small spatial scales, from sun flecks to cool shaded spots. Current assessments of thermal heterogeneity in complex

The Vulnerability of Tropical Ectotherms to Warming Is Modulated by the Microclimatic Heterogeneity.

TLDR
It is suggested that the fine scale mosaic of microclimates in the tropics modulates the vulnerability of ectotherms to warming.

A review of the thermal biology and ecology of molluscs, and of the use of infrared thermography in molluscan research

TLDR
This review thoroughly review the thermal biology and ecology of molluscs, and the previous biological and ecological applications of infrared thermography—including the very few in mollsuscan research, and provides detailed recommendations related to the proper use ofrared thermography.

Dual reference method for high precision infrared measurement of leaf surface temperature under field conditions

TLDR
A novel ‘dual-reference’ method was developed to increase the accuracy of infrared needle-leaf surface temperature measurements in the field and opens the way for investigating a wide range of leaf-scale processes and its dynamics.

Recent Advances in Data Logging for Intertidal Ecology

Temperature is among the most ubiquitous determinants of organism growth, survival and reproduction. Accurate recordings and predictions of how the temperatures of plants and animals vary in time and

'Dual reference' method for high precision infrared measurement of leaf surface temperature under field conditions.

TLDR
A novel 'dual-reference' method was developed to increase the accuracy of infrared needle-leaf surface temperature measurements in the field and opens the way for investigating a wide range of leaf-scale processes and its dynamics.

Warming decreases thermal heterogeneity of leaf surfaces: implications for behavioural thermoregulation by arthropods

TLDR
Experimental manipulation of ambient conditions to quantify the effects of environmental change on the thermal heterogeneity within individual leaf surfaces and the implications for behavioural thermoregulation by arthropods at a single leaf surface are explored.

Thermal Heterogeneity in River Floodplains

River floodplains are composed of a shifting mosaic of aquatic and terrestrial habitats. Each habitat type exhibits distinct environmental and ecological properties. Temperature is a key property

Infrared thermography in marine ecology: methods, previous applications and future challenges

TLDR
The aim of this paper was to summarise the rapidly growing application of IRT in marine ecology, to discuss best practises for using I RT in the marine environment whilst outlining some common limitations, and to suggest future research directions.

Infra‐red thermometry of alpine landscapes challenges climatic warming projections

Rough mountain terrain offers climatic conditions (niches) to plants and animals poorly represented by conventional climate station data. However, the extent to which actual temperatures deviate from

A toolbox for studying thermal heterogeneity across spatial scales: from unmanned aerial vehicle imagery to landscape metrics

A major barrier for the scientific community of climate change biologists is the spatial mismatch between the size of organisms and the resolution at which global climate data are collected and

Use of infrared thermography for monitoring stomatal closure in the field: application to grapevine.

TLDR
This paper reviews and discusses strategies for the use of thermal imaging for studies of stomatal conductance in the field and compares techniques for image collection and analysis and evidence is presented that the temperature of reference surfaces exposed within the canopy can be affected by the canopy water status.

Use of infrared thermography for monitoring stomatal closure in the field: application to grapevine

This paper reviews and discusses strategies for the use of thermal imaging for studies of stomatal conductance in the field and compares techniques for image collection and analysis. Measurements were

Canopy temperature as a crop water stress indicator

Canopy temperatures, obtained by infrared thermometry, along with wet- and dry-bulb air temperatures and an estimate of net radiation were used in equations derived from energy balance considerations

Thermal infrared remote sensing for analysis of landscape ecological processes: methods and applications

Thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing data can provide important measurements of surface energy fluxes and temperatures, which are integral to understanding landscape processes and responses. One
