Table 2 Critical temperatures and Jonckheere-Terpstra statistical analysis for reproductive and non-reproductive Fukomys anselli

From: Higher resting metabolic rate in long-lived breeding Ansell’s mole-rats (Fukomys anselli)

Parameter Reproductive Non-reproductive
Upper critical temperature ≥33 °Ca 30 °C
 Temperature range /JT/p N/A 28...32 °C/368/0.0486
 Temperature range /JT/p 32...33 °C/90/0.16 28...30 °C/102/0.43
Lower critical temperature 28 °C 26 °C
 Temperature range /JT/p 26...33 °C/421/0.0002 25...30 °C/471/0.043
 Temperature range /JT/p 28...33 °C/410/0.346 26...30 °C/246/0.1364
  1. Upper critical temperature and lower critical temperature together with parameters of statistical analysis in reproductive and non-reproductive F. anselli. aminimal value only, because of lack of RMR data for reproductive animals at temperatures above 33 °C, see Methods for more detail. JT represents Jonckheere-Terpstra-statistics, p is the probability of trend in data
