Data from: Insect rate-temperature relationships: environmental variation and the metabolic theory of ecology

Ulrike Irlich, John S. Terblanche, Tim M. Blackburn & Steven L. Chown
Much of the recent discussion concerning the form and underlying mechanistic basis of metabolic rate–temperature and development rate–temperature relationships has been precipitated by the development of the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE). Empirical tests of the theory’s fundamental equation are an essential component of establishing its validity. Here, we test the temperature component of the fundamental equation of the MTE as it applies to metabolic rate and development rate, using insects as model organisms. Specifically,...
