Table 2 Average expected fitness for each isolate calculated by integrating temperature-dependent fitness measures over the observed thermal preference distributions ("Obs.") compared to the maximum fitness expected is all individuals chose the single best temperature ("Max.")

From: Does thermoregulatory behavior maximize reproductive fitness of natural isolates of Caenorhabditis elegans?
