Appendix A. A figure showing ambient temperatures recorded hourly.

   FIG. A1. Mean hourly ambient temperatures from measures made at five-minute intervals for the lowland (red), mid-elevation (green), and cloud forest (blue) sites in Puerto Rico during the three years of study. Horizontal lines at 24ºC and 34ºC delineate the zone of temperatures above developmental zero but below optimal incubation levels where prolonged exposure can cuase abnormal development.
