The effect of a linseed oil diet on hibernation in yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris)
The essential fatty acids (EFAs), alpha-linolenic acid (18:3,n-3) and linoleic acid (18:2,n-6) are known to be important for mammalian hibernation. In marmots (Marmota flaviventris), reducing bothExpand

Patterns of fatty acid composition in free-ranging yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris) and their diet
In the laboratory, dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are conserved in the tissues of hibernators and are important for normal hibernation. Prior to this study, it was unknown if PUFAs areExpand
