  • See Schwarzkopf, Caley and Kearney 2016 for further details
  • These parameters are for a Sydney (temperate) population - a population from Townsville (tropical) was also considered
  • The effect of cold rearing conditions on growth was also explored and it was concluded that thermal acclimation in the embryo results in altered thermal response as a hatching
  • mod_3: inclusion of t-L and t-Ww data and subsequent re-estimation
