  • AbstractWe reared Cloeon dipterum from egg hatch to adult at 10 constant temperatures (12.1–33.5°C) to test 3 hypotheses (thermal equilibrium hypothesis, temperature size rule [TSR], and O2- and capacity-limited thermal tolerance [OCLTT]) that account for variation in life-history traits across thermal gradients. [...] Key Result Male and female adult size declined ~67 and 78% and larval development time declined ~88% with warming; chronic survivorship (thermal limit for population growth) was highest from 16.2…Expand Abstract
