Reptilian thermoregulation (a critique),

abstract1 (full description below): Science 148:1250-1251. 1965.
Reptilian Thermoregulation. PDF/Acrobat file     Michael E. Soule

J. E. Heath [Science 146, 784 (1964)] takes "many workers" to task for poor scientific practices in the study of reptilian thermoregulation. Since I [Copeia 1963, 107 (1963)] am the only one of the workers mentioned, and since Heath's conclusions are controverted by a reanalysis of his data, I feel obliged to indicate some of the probable sources of confusion and error.
