Behavioral thermoregulation and the "final preferendum" paradigm
TLDR
This paradigm, developed for use with fishes, can also be applied to other ectothermic taxa, although it is most easily employed with aquatic organisms because of the simplicity of specifying aquatic thermal environments in terms of water temperature alone.
Behavioural fever in teleost fishes
TLDR
The behavioural fever in lizards has been shown to have survival value4 and the bacterium pathogenic to mammals, reptiles, amphibians and fishes, causing haemorrhagic septicaemia, is shown to be pathogenic.
Survival value of fever in fish
TLDR
It is reported here that fever significantly enhances survival of goldfish, Carassius auratus, at febrile temperatures about 10 °C lower than those of D. dorsails, after injection with live A. hydrophila.
Temperature as a Proximate Factor in Orientation Behavior
TLDR
Temperature serves as a proximate factor (cue, guidepost, sign stimulus, or directive factor) affecting locomotor responses of fishes and nonthermal factors may provide the ultimate adaptive or ecological value of a temperature response.
Vagile macrofauna and the hydrographic environment of the Saco River Estuary and adjacent waters of the Gulf of Maine
TLDR
Field distributions of various species and life stages agreed with their locomotor responses in the laboratory to physicochemical gradients, supporting the view that habitat correlations are at least in part determined by active habitat preference and/oor avoidance behavior of vagile species.
The Role of Temperature in the Environmental Physiology of Fishes
Temperature is among the most pervasive and important physical factors in the environment of an organism. It is a measure of the average rate of random motions of atoms and molecules: the higher the
