SummaryGenetic and environmental components of adaptation to cold inMus musculus were assessed in a study of the effects of selective breeding for behavioral temperature regulation (indexed by high and low levels of nest-building), rearing mice from birth in the cold, and cold acclimation of adult animals, on thermoregulatory traits. Mice from the eleventh selected generation of a high-nesting line maintained higher resting metabolic rates and body temperatures, while at the same time consuming… CONTINUE READING
