Physiological plasticity increases resilience of ectothermic animals to climate change
Acclimation, a form of physiological plasticity, is the capacity for organisms to physiologically adjust to temperature variation. Such changes can potentially reduce climate change impacts on animalExpand

What is conservation physiology? Perspectives on an increasingly integrated and essential science†
The definition of ‘conservation physiology’ is refined to be more inclusive, with an emphasis on characterizing diversity, understanding and predicting responses to environmental change andExpand

Antarctic fish can compensate for rising temperatures: thermal acclimation of cardiac performance in Pagothenia borchgrevinki
SUMMARY Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica, inhabit one of the coldest and most thermally stable of all environments. Sea temperatures under the sea ice in thisExpand

A falsification of the thermal specialization paradigm: compensation for elevated temperatures in Antarctic fishes
Specialization to a particular environment is one of the main factors used to explain species distributions. Antarctic fishes are often cited as a classic example to illustrate the specializationExpand

Predicting the physiological performance of ectotherms in fluctuating thermal environments
SUMMARY Physiological ecologists have long sought to understand the plasticity of organisms in environments that vary widely among years, seasons and even hours. This is now even more importantExpand

Plasma osmolyte concentrations and rectal gland mass of bull sharks Carcharhinus leucas, captured along a salinity gradient.
Bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas) were captured across a salinity gradient from freshwater (FW) to seawater (SW). Across all salinities, C. leucas were hyperosmotic to the environment. PlasmaExpand

Sexual Maturity Can Double Heart Mass and Cardiac Power Output in Male Rainbow Trout
Summary Mature male rainbow trout have significantly higher relative ventricle masses (RVM, ventricle mass as a percentage of body mass) than do immature males or females. Hatchery-reared maturingExpand

Physiological mechanisms of thermoregulation in reptiles: a review
The thermal dependence of biochemical reaction rates means that many animals regulate their body temperature so that fluctuations in body temperature are small compared to environmental temperatureExpand
