Ab.wacr.-The range of splionil Pngnrriclrrlr,r ~cmlcpido~ur has decrused to lcsr than r third of its original range due to loss or alleration of habitats. We measured the critical 1henn.l minima agement and rcstoralion of this species. Neither thermal acclimrtion nor fish weight affeaed the Gin (6.5-7.3W but CT,. (29-33'C) of fish acclimated at 17 and 20.t were higher than CT,. (21-22T) of fish acclimated a I2T.
