These temperatures have been gathered from several sources, and even though we have used the average and cross checked our data, please use them only as indications of the preferances for the different species. If you have better and more precise knowledge or know the temperature data for species not yet on the list, please direct a mail to the Kasper or Martin and let us know. See the data in a graph here.
