Organisms are often forced to acclimate to changing environmental temperature. Temperature compensation mechanisms have been reported, which enable organisms to minimize some of the temperature related effects. To investigate this process, zebrafish (Danio rerio) were acclimated to a control (26 degrees C), an increased (34 degrees C) or a decreased (18 degrees C) temperature for 4, 14 and 28 days. In general, warm acclimation depleted energy stores and decreased the condition factor, while… CONTINUE READING
