Appendix S1. The 78 taxa considered in the study, along with the groups into which 56 taxa were placed for analysing changes in distribution and modelling change: upland-lowland (Up-Low), eastern-western (E-W) and the 28 most southerly taxa (S).
Appendix S2. Methodological details for: (i) poststratifying family-level trends; (ii) calculating temperature preferences based on trait-based information; and (iii) calculating temperature preferences based on mean water temperatures.
