Data from: Temperature-size rule is mediated by thermal plasticity of critical size in Drosophila melanogaster

Shampa M. Ghosh, Nicholas D. Testa & Alexander W. Shingleton
Most ectotherms show an inverse relationship between developmental temperature and body size, a phenomenon known as the temperature size rule (TSR). Several competing hypotheses have been proposed to explain its occurrence. According to one set of views, the TSR results from inevitable biophysical effects of temperature on the rates of growth and differentiation, whereas other views suggest the TSR is an adaptation that can be achieved by a diversity of mechanisms in different taxa. Our...
