Title: Evaluation of a new miniature temperature data logger: Herpetological review

Abstract

Peterson and Dorcas described the advantages of using data loggers to measure variation in the environment. We used a new, miniature temperature data logger to measure the temperatures of nests and hibernacula of desert tortoises (Gopherus agassizii). Here we report on the accuracy, reliability, and ease of use of these data loggers. Reference to a company or product name does not imply approval or recommendation of the product by the US Department of Energy to the exclusion of others that may be suitable. Quoted costs are from a published price list.
