Fig. 1

Culture collection centers represents a rich source for growth temperature data. a An overview schematic showing how the growth temperature dataset was obtained. b A database comparison showing which provided the largest number of unique organisms not present in the others. Total in resource shows the total number of organisms in each database, unique to resource shows how many organisms in that database were unique. c A violin-plot showing the growth distribution of growth temperatures in the dataset for each of the three domains of life. The white dot represents the median. The broad black bar represents the upper and lower quartile, which contain 50% of the data points. The thin black lines represent the upper and lower adjacent values. The outer plot shape is a kernel density plot that visualizes the probability distribution of the data
