Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    This data set contains information of several physiological and behavioural traits that correlate to species' potential to extend into climatic extremes, such as regions with hot or dry conditions. It combines summarized data on these traits from an earlier study with data on climate at species' occurrence records accessible online.

  2. Type: full

    This data set summarizes thermal traits of 13 species of small ectotherms from Eastern Australia and combines these with summarized data on climatic extremes that species are exposed to within their range based on climate layers and species' occurrence records accessible online through the Atlas of Living Australia (http://www.ala.org.au/). It contains raw data on climate and occurrence records after removal of outliers as well as a summarized data set on thermal traits and summarized climate data. The data for the original data set was collected at James Cook University, Cairns QLD, Australia, as part of a PhD project from 2012 to 2014. Animals were collected along the Australian East Coast from locations between Canberra and Lockhart River. Detailed methodologies can be found in the data record of the original data set as well as in the related PhD thesis and publication.
