There was an error published in J. Exp. Biol. (2017) 220, 837-843 (doi: 10.1242/jeb.151449).

A mistake was made by the authors in the calculation of RMR values. The corrected Results section, tables and figures follow and we indicate where the significance of relationships changed. There are no changes to the conclusions of the paper.

Mass-adjusted RMR (ml O2 g−1 h−1) was higher in the moist season than in the dry season (t29.17=−3.40, P=0.001). Whole-animal RMR also varied seasonally (ANCOVA: F=39.82, P<0.0001). Whole-animal RMR did not correlate with individual body mass (r38=0.29, t=1.90, P=0.06, N=40; Fig. S1), while in the previously published version it was significant at P=0.04.

T3 levels (χ2=5.43, d.f.=7, P=0.01; Table 2, Fig. 2) and season (χ2=26.32, d.f.=7, P<0.001; Table 2, Fig. 2) influenced log-transformed whole-animal RMR, while sex and body mass had no significant effect (sex: χ2=0.21, d.f.=7, P=0.63; body mass: χ2=2.06, d.f.=7, P=0.15; Table 2). In the moist season, log-transformed T3 levels and log-transformed whole-animal RMR were negatively correlated (r16=−0.54, t=−2.62, P=0.018, N=18; Fig. 2), while they were not correlated in the dry season (r20=−0.08, t=−0.38, P=0.70, N=22; Fig. 2). T3 levels (χ2=14.43, d.f.=6, P=0.001; Table S1, Fig. S2), season (χ2=23.59, d.f.=6, P<0.001; Table S1, Fig. S2) and their interaction (χ2=32.86, d.f.=4, P<0.001; Table S1, Fig. S2) influenced log-transformed mass-adjusted RMR, whereas sex had no influence (χ2=1.32, d.f.=6, P=0.24; Table S1).

There are no changes to the conclusions of the paper. The authors apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
