Martens exhibit several attributes that could permit them to avoid high thermoregulatory and activity expenditures during the coldest season, and we predicted that in winter they would reduce their activity level and FMR, compared with autumn.
The thermoregulatory benefits of nesting and huddling have been well documented in golden mice (Sealander 1952; Knuth & Barrett 1984; Peles & Barrett 2007).
The results of this work show that, congruently with the observations obtained in semi-natural conditions (Schleich and Busch, 2002), the time that the pups spent begging during isolation decreased at the end of the second week of life, concomitantly with the development of independent walking and eating, and with the development of the thermoregulatory capacity.
We used this equation to compare thermoregulatory abilities between forest and forest edges (following Blouin-Demers and Weatherhead 2001c, defined as [+ or -] 15 m of the boundary between forest and any open habitat).
Thermoregulatory tactics in such animals have attracted intense scientific scrutiny, with many studies emphasizing the precision and subtlety of temperature regulation (Peterson et al.
Moreover, thanks to SmartWool's thermoregulatory properties, the wearer's body temperature stays steady no matter what the weather or climate.
Research suggests that vasomotor symptoms are related to the effects of estrogen depletion on neurotransmitters, which subsequently affect the body's thermoregulatory system.
This has significant implications in overall body composition, as the thermoregulatory system becomes fine-tuned even when the body is at rest.
To better understand the thermoregulation of premature infants in a certain-micro-climate, thermoregulatory models and corresponding simulation tools have been developed.
The next five assignments require students to describe the nervous system, sensory systems, internal transport system, gas exchange system, thermoregulatory mechanisms, waste disposal systems, and forms of locomotion.
