Surveying freshwater sponge diversity in the Great Lakes region

It depends on whether the temperature is raised gradually (e.g., three days at 15 C; then 3 days at 18 C; then 3 days at 21 C; then 3 days at 24 C; etc. If it is simply a temperature shock (one big step to the new temperature, I think 24 C will be the limit. However, with gradual acclimation over several days (per the sequence I described), your beetles will survive up to 29 C. [we have done acclimation experiments with zebra mussels, so this procedure is somewhat derived from our experience.].

A great discovery by Ron Kompka and an excellent follow-up by Hall, Rosbash, Young and their students and post-docs.
