Title Belasen et al. adult male EWL
Downloaded 7 times
Description Sites are divided into separate tabs in the spreadsheet. Lizards were given a "number" and an "ID" reflecting unique toeclip combinations. Activity was recorded as either hiding, basking, or foraging. Sex is coded as F for female, F(n) for non-gravid female, F(g) for gravid female, and M for male. Site is coded as follows: 1 - Naxos Low Elevation (NLE); 2 - Naxos South-Facing (NSF); 3 - Naxos North-Facing (NNF); 4 - Ovriokastro, Small Islet 1 (OVR); 5 - Aspronissi, Small Islet 2 (ASP). Activity c and sex c are coded versions of these variables. Body temperature is the internal temperature of the lizard taken with a cloacal thermometer. Substrate temp was the temperature of the substrate on which the lizard was found, and Air temp was the temperature of the air ~5 cm above the substrate. Weight of the lizard was recorded in grams and snout-vent length (SVL) and tail length (TL) in centimeters. Tail condition (TC) was recorded as complete (1 or C) or broken (0 or B). Fragment length (FL) was recorded in centimeters for lizards with broken tails.

Description Site is coded as follows: 1 - Naxos Low Elevation (NLE); 2 - Naxos South-Facing (NSF); 3 - Naxos North-Facing (NNF); 4 - Ovriokastro, Small Islet 1 (OVR); 5 - Aspronissi, Small Islet 2 (ASP).

Weight of the lizard was recorded in grams and snout-vent length (SVL) and tail length (TL) in centimeters. Tail condition (TC) was recorded as complete (1 or C) or broken (0 or B). Fragment length (FL) was recorded in centimeters for lizards with broken tails. Date is the date of the thermal preference experiment and start and end time of the experiment is recorded. Temperature was recorded at 2 min intervals for one hour. Mean and quartiles were calculated at the end of the trial.

Site is coded as follows: 1 - Naxos Low Elevation (NLE); 2 - Naxos South-Facing (NSF); 3 - Naxos North-Facing (NNF); 4 - Ovriokastro, Small Islet 1 (OVR); 5 - Aspronissi, Small Islet 2 (ASP). Snout-vent length (SVL), trunk girth, tail length (TL), and tail girth were recorded in centimeters. Surface area was calculated as the sum of the SA of the trunk (cylinder) and the tail (cone). EWL was calculated as the difference between final lizard mass and initial lizard mass, divided by number of hours the experiment was run. Any lizards that defecated were re-run. Temperature and humidity were recorded at three time points during the experiment.

Title Belasen et al. offspring EWL

Description Data on incubation time and clutch size are recorded for gravid females kept in the laboratory. Snout-vent length (SVL), trunk girth, tail length (TL), and tail girth were recorded in centimeters. Surface area was calculated as the sum of the SA of the trunk (cylinder) and the tail (cone). EWL was calculated as the difference between final lizard mass and initial lizard mass, divided by number of hours the experiment was run. Any lizards that defecated were re-run. Temperature and humidity were recorded at three time points during the experiment. EWLs from babies were recorded and averaged within in a clutch for statistical analyses.

Title Belasen et al. Hobo readouts

Description In this folder there is a separate excel file for each sampling day at each site. In the filenames, site is coded as follows: 1 - Naxos Low Elevation (NLE); 2 - Naxos South-Facing (NSF); 3 - Naxos North-Facing (NNF); 4 - Ovriokastro, Small Islet 1 (OVR); 5 - Aspronissi, Small Islet 2 (ASP). Readings from before the logger was deployed in the field (during the time between turning the logger on and arriving at the field site) were deleted. Temperature was recorded every 5 min at each site. Loggers are divided into tabs, with loggers 1 and 2 always being deployed in the sun, loggers 3 and 4 in mixed sun/shade, and loggers 5 and 6 always deployed in the shade. Each logger had two probes, thus there are two temperatures (recorded in degrees C) per logger per time point.
