This function calculates the thermal quality of the habitat (de) from the perspective of the focal species or population as described by Hertz et al. (1993). Descriptive statistics are automatically computed as well.

`te` |
A vector containing operative temperatures. |

`tset_low` |
Lower boundary of a species or population set-point range that was determined through thermal preference trials in a temperature gradient. |

`tset_up` |
Upper boundary of the set-point range. |
