Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    This data set contains the cold tolerance of the tropical skink Carlia longipes during its entire acclimation process to low temperatures, data on the temperatures where this study took place recorded by the bureau of meteorology and experimentally recorded habitat temperatures of the study species.

  2. Type: full

    This data set contains the critical thermal minimum temperatures (CTmin) of individuals of the restricted tropical ectotherm Carlia longipes over an extensive acclimation process (more than 16 weeks) to a cold temperature regime and supplementary material on the lag of body temperature behind air temperature in the experiment used to measure CTmin. It also includes data obtained from the bureau of meteorology (http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/data/ accessed 10.6.2014 on minimum temperatures recorded during the study as well as experimentally collected habitat temperatures of the study species at the coldest time of day throughout the year. The data was collected in Cairns QLD, Australia, as part of a PhD project from 2012 to 2013. Detailed methodologies can be found in the related PhD thesis and publication.
