CRAWFORD, EUGENE C., JR., AND GEOFFREY KAMPE. Physiological responses of the lizard Sauromalus obesus to changes in ambient temperature. Am. J. Physiol. 220(5) : 12561260. 197 1 .-Animals were subjected to ambient temperatures from 26 to 43.5 C. Body temperatures remained 0.2-O. 7 C above ambient. Cutaneous evaporation increased from 2.0 to 9.5 mg HaO/cmz.day, with a & of 2.43. Respiratory evaporation increased with a & of 3.96 to 40 C (from 1.3 to 8.0 mg HsO/g l day). Between 40 and 43.5 C… CONTINUE READING
