... temperature, variance in temperature, and sex to test the Charnov–Bull model using a physiological trait, immune system strength, in the snapping turtle ( Chelydra serpentina ). We found no evidence of sex-specific differences in bactericidal capacity of hatchling blood, and no evidence that mean temperature...
