Study aim: to test the hypothesis that costs and benefits of cell size in ectotherms are temperature dependent. Data: To study the consequences of cell size we measured whole-organism metabolic rate for diploid and triploid zebrafish larvae differing in cell size. A fully factorial design was applied combining three different rearing and test temperatures that allowed us to distinguish acute from acclimated thermal effects. Individual oxygen consumption rates of diploid and triploid larvae across declining levels of oxygen availability were measured.
