The metabolic effects of evaporative water loss at 5 °C were assessed for both fall- and spring-collected spring peepersPsuedacris crucifer. Frogs readily endured the loss of 50% of total body water. During dehydration organ water content was defended with no change in water content in skeletal muscle, gut, and kidney of 50% dehydrated frogs and reduced water content in liver, brain and heart. Dehydration stimulated a rapid and massive increase in liver glucose production. In fall-collected… CONTINUE READING
