Principles of evaluation of thermoadaptation abilities of reptiles

Annotation

In the article we propose to use the new indicators of the thermoadaptation abilities of reptiles – thermoadaptation index (It) and the absolute body temperature optimum (AO). These indicators can unify thermobiological research and make the data obtained by different herpetologists comparable. The values of It and AO for 14 species of reptiles of the Volga Basin are show. The regularities in It and AO are found: moderate positive correlation between the AO and the outside temperature, the negative relation of AO and It, a strong negative correlation between it and the outside temperature.

Keywords

thermoadaptation index; absolute optimum; reptiles; Volga Basin.
