The application of Bergmann's and Allen's rules to the poikilotherms
In this respect, the frogs resemble Antarctic fishes and numerous other poikilotherms
Behavioral regulation of body temperature in poikilotherms
Gigantism, temperature and metabolic rate in terrestrial poikilotherms
Climatic adaptation in arctic and tropical poikilotherms
Another source of potential bias in the POF method is the duration of follicular degeneration, which may be temperature-dependent (Hunter and Macewicz, 1985), because the metabolic rates of poikilotherms
, like fish, may be directly affected by ambient temperature.
In an insightful review of growth rate variation in plants, homoiotherms, and poikilotherms
, Arendt (1997) concludes that high maximum growth rates are selected under conditions of low environmental stress, but this ability trades off with efficient use of resources (or tissue differentiation).
Molecular mechanism of temperature compensation in poikilotherms
Physiologically based parameters, such as growth, reproduction, distribution, and behavior, of marine poikilotherms
are affected by temperature.
The relationship between individual growth and density of freshwater poikilotherms
is often well described by a curve with decelerating slope (e.
Solving the individual growth rate equation for poikilotherms
attributed to Farlow by Peters (1983) and using caloric densities we reported for Hadenoecus subterraneus (Studier et al.
It is well known that one of the mechanisms used by poikilotherms
to counteract the effect of temperature on membrane fluidity is to modify acyl-chain composition of phospholipids.
