Data from: Balancing risk and reward: mating opportunity influences thermal refuge use in fiddler crabs

M. Zachary Darnell, Talene Yeghissian & Zachary M. Lane
Behavioural thermoregulation can ameliorate thermal stress but is costly. For species that court in a thermally stressful microhabitat, sexual selection via endurance rivalry favours individuals that are able and willing to endure harsh conditions in the courtship habitat, as retreats to a thermal refuge will reduce mating opportunities. The relative costs and benefits of refuge use versus continued courtship in the face of thermal risk, which vary across abiotic and biotic contexts, determine the optimal...
