### Data from: Extreme operative temperatures are better descriptors of the thermal environment than mean temperatures

Agustín Camacho, Miguel Trefaut Rodrigues, Carlos Arturo Navas & Carlos Navas
In ecological studies of thermal biology the thermal environment is most frequently described using the mean or other measures of central tendency in environmental temperatures. However, this procedure may hide biologically relevant thermal variation for ectotherms, potentially misleading interpretations. Extremes of operative temperatures (EOT) can help with this problem by bracketing the thermal environment of focal animals. Within this paper, we quantify how mean operative temperatures relate to the range of simultaneously available operative temperatures...
