Thermal sensitivity of metabolism (estimated by the temperature coefficient, Q10) is important for understanding ectotherm responses to temperature, but can only be measured empirically. Several strategies can be used to estimate thermal sensitivity. Static temperature respirometry uses measurements of metabolic rate taken at a series of temperatures, either by using different individuals at each temperature (independent STR, iSTR), or the same individual at several different temperatures… Expand
