Animal Physiology: Adaptation and Environment
This chapter discusses the regulation of movement, muscle, biomechanics, and information and senses in the body during the menstrual cycle and the role that food and energy play in this process. Expand
Scaling, why is animal size so important?
This book discusses the size of living things, animal activity and metabolic scope, and some important concepts of body temperature and temperature regulation. Expand
Locomotion: energy cost of swimming, flying, and running.
Scaling of energetic cost of running to body size in mammals.
It is found that steady-state oxygen consumption of seven groups of mammals (21 g-18 kg) increased almost linearly with running speed, and could be expressed by linear equations. Expand
Desert Animals: Physiological Problems of Heat and Water
Bargaining with reading habit is no need. Reading is not kind of something sold that you can take or not. It is a thing that will change your life to life better. It is the thing that will give youExpand
Body temperature of the camel and its relation to water economy.
The rectal temperature of normal healthy camels at rest may vary from about 34°C to more than 40°C. Diurnal variations in the winter are usually in the order of 2°C. In summer the diurnal variation...
Energy expenditure for thermoregulation and locomotion in emperor penguins.
The data suggest that walking 200 km (from the sea to the rookery and back) requires less than 15% of the energy reserves of a breeding male emperor penguin initially weighing 35 kg. Expand
Terrestrial locomotion in penguins: it costs more to waddle.
The morphology of penguins seems to represent a compromise between aquatic and terrestrial locomotion wherein both energy economy and speed suffer when the birds move on land. Expand
The metabolic cost of swimming in ducks.
The metabolic cost of swimming was studied in mallard ducks which had been trained to swim steadily in a variable-speed water channel and indicated a maximum overall efficiency for the swimming ducks of about 5%, whereas Ships typically have maximum efficiencies of 20-30%. Expand
