From individuals to populations: How intraspecific competition shapes thermal reaction norms

Thomas Tully, François Mallard, Vincent Le Bourlot, Christie Le Coeur, Monique Avnaim, Romain Peronnet & David Claessen
1. Most ectotherms follow the temperature-size rule (TSR): in cold environments individuals grow slowly but reach a large asymptotic length. Intraspecific competition can induce plastic changes of growth rate and asymptotic length and competition may itself be modulated by temperature. 2. Our aim is to disentangle the joint effects of temperature and intraspecific competition on growth rate and asymptotic length. 3. We used two distinct clonal lineages of the Collembola Folsomia candida, to describe thermal...
