  1. Notes: Five-day mean values for temperature were calculated from daily averages reported at the nearest meteorological station (Takhini River Ridge: 60°56'45.0"N, 135°34'23.0"W, elevation 671 m) [33]. Mean values for relative humidity were not available. Missing values are indicated by dashes and include weeks one and 12 when sampling was absent
