For ectothermic organisms, environmental temperatures can influence a variety of life history traits. Experimental thermal gradients created in the laboratory are useful tools to examine the thermoregulatory behaviors of these organisms. Here, we provide details on the construction of a novel, cost-effective thermal gradient to study thermoregulatory behaviors in small-bodied nocturnal ectotherms.
