 The regression coefficients were calculated according to the function ln$g$=$a$
_{0}+ $a$
_{1}
$T$+a. The methods are as follows: (1) average value, (2) mode value, and (3) multiplepeak consideration. Values in parentheses are bootstrap estimates of the standard error of coefficients. g, weightspecific growth rate (1/day); M, body mass (μg); T, temperature (K); E, activation energy (eV), E = a
_{1} × k; k, Boltzmann's constant (eV/K); n, sample size; MSE of crossvalidation, mean squared error calculated from the 10fold crossvalidation analysis.
