05 Oct New paper out in Scientific Data
Our new paper “A comprehensive database of amphibian heat tolerance” led by Patrice Pottier at the University of New South Wales has been published in Scientific Data.
In this paper, a multi-lingual team led by Patrice systematically searched the literature on amphibian heat tolerance in seven languages, and produced the most comprehensive dataset to date on amphibian upper thermal limits, spanning 3,095 estimates from 213 studies across 616 species.
Importantly, we identified 27 non-English-language studies that met the eligibility criteria (about 13% of all studies identified), which again indicates the importance of searching literature in multiple languages.
