Animal adaptation to cold / Lawrence C.H. Wang, ed.

Title: Animal adaptation to cold / Lawrence C.H. Wang, ed.
Author(s): Wang, Lawrence C. H.,
Date: 1989.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
Abstract: Contains 11 chapters by various authors summarising and reviewing current knowledge of physiological and behavioural cold adpatation. Titles of chapters are: 1. Cold adpatation in ectotherms: regulation of membrane function and cellular metabolism; 2. Freeze tolerance and freeze avoidance in ectotherms; 3. Biochemical mechanisms and control of cold-induced cellular thermogenesis in placental mammals; 4. Neurophysiological aspects of thermoregulation; 5. Neurochemical aspects of thermoregulation; 6. Avian adjustments to cold; 7. Responses to cold of monotremes and marsupials; 8. Aquatic mammals in cold; 9. Terrestrial mammals in cold; 10. Ecological, physiological, and biochemical aspects of torpor in mammals and birds; 11. Cold, energetics, and populations.
