A major area of interest in comparative physiology has been to understand how animals cope with changing environmental demands in time and space. The digestive system has been identified as one of the more sensitive systems to changes in environmental conditions. However, most research on this topic has evaluated these effects during peak energetic demands, which do not allow for evaluation of the dynamics of the digestive response along a more natural continuous gradient of environmental… CONTINUE READING
