No consistent effect of daytime versus night-time measurement of thermal tolerance in nocturnal and diurnal lizards

Pauline C Dufour, Toby PN Tsang, Susana Clusella-Trullas & Timothy C Bonebrake
While essential in understanding impacts of climate change for organisms, diel variation remains an understudied component of temporal variation in thermal tolerance limits (i.e. the critical thermal minimum (CTmin) and maximum (CTmax)). For example, a higher Ctmax might be expected for an individual if the measurement is taken during the day (when heat stress is most likely to occur) instead of at night. We measured thermal tolerance (Ctmin and Ctmax) during both the daytime and...
