What can physiological capacity and behavioral choice tell us about thermal adaptation?

Paul Vinu Salachan, Jesper Sørensen & Heidi MacLean
To date, behavioral responses and their role for thermal adaptation have been largely overlooked in small ectotherms. Here, we measure reproductive output using four adult acclimation temperatures in Drosophila melanogaster and quantify egg-laying at restricted temperatures (thermal capacity) and across a thermal gradient (thermal preference). We demonstrate that different conclusions about insect responses to changing environmental temperatures can be drawn based on whether individuals were temperature restricted or were allowed a behavioral choice of temperature....
