Abstract Heat tolerance is commonly determined by exposing organisms to increasing temperatures until they show symptoms of thermal stress or death. Here we carried out an experiment on a blenny species (Acantemblemaria hancocki; Pisces: Chaenopsidae) and reviewed the literature to evaluate the extent to which variations in the rate at which temperature is increased in experimental trials affects thermal tolerance of fishes. For the blenny species, we found that thermal tolerance decreases… Expand

Effects of warming rate, acclimation temperature and ontogeny on the critical thermal maximum of temperate marine fish larvae
TLDR
The present study constitutes a first step towards a standard protocol for measuring thermal tolerance in larval fish, where a difference of up to 8°C was observed in the upper thermal limit between a 0.5- or 24-h exposure to temperatures >18°C. Expand
Effect of warming rate on the critical thermal maxima of crabs, shrimp and fish.
TLDR
The importance of estimating CTMax values at realistic rates that species encounter in their environment and thus have an ecological value is highlighted, as subtidal species presented lower CTMax, at all warming rates tested. Expand
Limpet feeding rate and the consistency of physiological response to temperature
TLDR
The first measure of the thermal reaction norm for feeding is conducted, comparing the radula rasping rate of two tropical and one polar limpet species, indicating that different mechanisms likely underlie different aspects of species sensitivities to temperature. Expand
Effects of warming rates on physiological and molecular components of response to CTMax heat stress in the Antarctic fish Harpagifer antarcticus.
TLDR
A lack of up-regulated response of heat shock proteins is found, consistent with other Antarctic notothenioids, and the general transcriptional pattern trended to downregulation, which was more evident in the slower 0.3 °C/min rate. Expand
Effects of recent thermal history on thermal behaviour, thermal tolerance and oxygen uptake of Yellowtail Kingfish (Seriola lalandi) juveniles.
TLDR
The thermoregulatory behaviour of yellowtail kingfish in the juvenile stages could be one of the most important mechanisms to maintain its optimal physiological performance by actively selecting a stable thermal environment close to 26 °C. Expand
Effect of heating rate on the upper incipient lethal temperature for copepods
TLDR
To explore how heating rate influences the thermal tolerance of copepods and to recommend heating rate criteria duringCopepod upper incipient lethal temperature(UILT) tests, four copepod species collected from the Yueqing Bay were studied in laboratory under different heating rates. Expand
Effect of salinity on the upper lethal temperature tolerance of early-juvenile red drum.
TLDR
It was determined that the lethal temperature at 50% (LT50) did not differ between the three salinities examined statistically; median lethal temperature for individuals exposed to 25ppt ranged from 36.4 to 37.4°C, and LT50 data obtained here for early-juvenile red drum did not differed from data of a similar experiment examining 25mm TL sized fish. Expand
Critical thermal limits depend on methodological context
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the functional thermal range of G. pallidipes in the wild may be much narrower than previously suspected, approximately 20–40°C, and highlights their sensitivity to even moderate temperature variation. Expand
Critical thermal maxima of early life stages of three tropical fishes: Effects of rearing temperature and experimental heating rate.
TLDR
Investigating the critical thermal maxima of larval and early juvenile life stages of three tropical marine fishes found CTmax to either remain stable or increase with body mass during early ontogeny, highlighting that, for obtaining conservative estimates of a fish species' upper thermal limits, several developmental stages and body mass ranges should be examined. Expand
Interactive effects of experimental heating rates, ontogeny and body mass on the upper thermal limits of anuran larvae.
TLDR
Investigation of synergic effects of experimental protocols and biological factors on the UTL on the larvae of two anuran species, specifically their Critical Thermal Maximum, contributes to integrate the understanding of factors influencing UTL in small ectothermic animals. Expand

Temperature Tolerances of North American Freshwater Fishes Exposed to Dynamic Changes in Temperature
TLDR
This review has summarized published research concerning the tolerance of North American freshwater fishes to dynamic changes in temperature, i.e., tolerance is tested by methods that gradually change temperatures until biological stress is observed. Expand
Evaluation of the critical thermal maximum for determining thermal tolerance of freshwater fish
TLDR
Recommendations are that test fish should be small, and relatively uniform in size and condition, and final loss of ability to return upright should be the loss of equilibrium criterion in CTM determinations, and linearity should be maintained in time-temperature distributions of the heating rate.

The critical thermal maximum: history and critique
TLDR
A literature review of previous studies to describe the history of the study of thermal tolerance and show the chronological trends in the use of lethal temperature and critical thermal maximum methods and illustrate the diversity of taxa used in thermal-tolerance studies. Expand
The Effects of High Temperatures on Roach (Rutilus Rutilus)
TLDR
The behaviour, on transfer to higher temperatures, depends on the acclimatization temperature and the size of the jump in temperature and can be divided into five characteristic stages. Expand
Tolerance to high temperatures and potential impact of sea warming on reef fishes of Gorgona Island (tropical eastern Pacific)
TLDR
It is suggested that fishes live far from their upper thermal tolerance limits and that the current global-warming trend is still unlikely to be dangerous for these species, and the possible ability of reef fishes to adapt to increases in sea temperature is discussed. Expand
Effect of Body Size on Reef Fish Tolerance to Extreme Low and High Temperatures
TLDR
The effect of body size on the thermal tolerance (as critical thermal maximum and minimum) of seven reef fish species from Gorgona Island suggests that thermal tolerance of small tropical reef fishes is not significantly affected by differences in body size. Expand
Critical thermal maxima and acclimation rate of the tropical guppy Poecilla reticulata
Tropical guppies, Poecilia reticulata, collected from the canal of La Laguna Los Patos were acclimated over a four-week period at local water temperatures of 24–33 °C to determine their criticalExpand
Experimental effect of cold, La Niña temperatures on the survival of reef fishes from Gorgona Island (eastern Pacific Ocean)
TLDR
The results suggest that most of the reef fishes studied are physiologically tolerant to the cold temperatures encountered during La Niña, though decreases in at least two populations may be expected as a result of the mortality of less tolerant individuals. Expand
Thermal tolerance, climatic variability and latitude
TLDR
Findings for insects based on published upper and lower lethal temperature data provide some support for the physiological tolerance assumption associated with Rapoport's rule, but highlight the need for coupled data on species tolerances and range size. Expand
Cold and heat tolerance of drosophilid flies with reference to their latitudinal distributions
TLDR
The acquisition of cold tolerance may lower a fly’s capacity to compete, survive or reproduce in warmer climates and heat tolerance was higher in species inhabiting openlands or the forest canopy than in those inhabiting the forest understorey. Expand
