Critical thermal limits (CTLs) are established viability thresholds when studying the impact of climate change on natural populations. Novel ‘thermal fertility limits’ of species have been proposed alongside CTLs, to better assess the sublethal effects of rising temperatures on species persistence. However, sex-specific sensitivity of fertility to temperature also needs consideration.
