Testing the reliability and ecological implications of ramping rates in the measurement of Critical Thermal maximum

Chi Man Leong, Toby P. N. Tsang & Benoit Guénard
Critical Thermal maximum (CTmax) is often used to characterize the upper thermal limits of organisms and represents a key trait for evaluating the fitness of ectotherms. The lack of standardization in CTmax assays has, however, introduced methodological problems in its measurement, which can lead to questionable estimates of species’ upper thermal limits. Focusing on ants, which are model organisms for research on thermal ecology, we aim to obtain a reliable ramping rate that will yield...
