Endothermy and activity in vertebrates.
Resting and maximal levels of oxygen consumption of endothermic vertebrates exceed those of ectotherms by an average of five- to tenfold. Endotherms have a much broader range of activity that can beExpand

Maximal isometric forces during both twitch and tetanus are largely temperature independent in muscles from both endothermic and ectothermic vertebrates. Anuran muscle can develop maximal force atExpand
The thermal dependence of lizard behaviour
Abstract New techniques were utilized to measure burst speed and distance running capacity in six species of lizards and to examine the thermal dependence of these behavioural capacities. TheseExpand
PHYLOGENETIC STUDIES OF COADAPTATION: PREFERRED TEMPERATURES VERSUS OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE TEMPERATURES OF LIZARDS

  • 1 September 1987
The view that behavior and physiological performance are tightly coadapted is a central principle of physiological ecology. Here, we test this principle using a comparative study of evolutionaryExpand
The Molecular Diversity of Adaptive Convergence
Natural Selection Caught in the Act Understanding how new functions evolve has been of long-standing interest. However, the number of mutations needed to evolve a key innovation is rarely known, orExpand
Phylogenetic approaches in comparative physiology
SUMMARY Over the past two decades, comparative biological analyses have undergone profound changes with the incorporation of rigorous evolutionary perspectives and phylogenetic information. ThisExpand
Thermal dependence of locomotor capacity.

  • 1 August 1990
The thermal dependence of locomotor performance capacity, particularly speed and endurance, in vertebrate ectotherms is examined. Most studies have found an optimal speed for performance atExpand
Experimental tests of the roles of adaptation, chance, and history in evolution.
The contributions of adaptation, chance, and history to the evolution of fitness and cell size were measured in two separate experiments using bacteria. In both experiments, populations propagated inExpand
SELECTION ON LOCOMOTOR PERFORMANCE CAPACITY IN A NATURAL POPULATION OF GARTER SNAKES
Selection on locomotor performance was determined for a series of marked and recaptured individuals from a population of garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis fitchi) in Northern California. We measuredExpand
Trade‐Offs in Thermal Adaptation: The Need for a Molecular to Ecological Integration*
Through functional analyses, integrative physiology is able to link molecular biology with ecology as well as evolutionary biology and is thereby expected to provide access to the evolution ofExpand
