get_ctmin(model)

Arguments

model

nls model object that contains a model of a thermal performance curve

Details

Optimum temperature is calculated by predicting over a temperature range 50 degrees beyond the minimum and maximum value in the dataset. The value closest to 0 is then extracted. When this is impossible due to the curve formula (i.e the Sharpe-Schoolfield models), the temperature where the rate is 5
