dc.description.abstract 1. We measured temperature resistance and lactic acid production of Notophthalmus viridescens and Plethodon cinerus acclimated to 10, 20 or 30°C. 2. Fatigue is responsible for the Loss of Righting Response (LRR) observed when Plethodon are heated and contributes to the LRR of Notophthalmus efts. 3. LRR is purely a manifestation of incapacitation by high temperature in Notophthalmus adults. 4. The Critical Thermal Maximum (CTM) is solely a product of temperature incapacitation in all three forms. 5. The standard test for temperature resistance should be expanded to include tests of fatigue. en_US
