BACKGROUND Mathematical models exist that quantify the effect of temperature on poikilotherm growth rate. One family of such models assumes a single rate-limiting 'master reaction' using terms describing the temperature-dependent denaturation of the reaction's enzyme. We consider whether such a model can describe growth in each domain of life. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS A new model based on this assumption and using a hierarchical Bayesian approach fits simultaneously 95 data sets for… CONTINUE READING
