The frequency of arousal from periods of hibernation of Citellus lateralis, C. tridecemlineatus, and C. columbianus was demonstrated to be regulated by environmental (and therefore body) temperature over the range of 2-12 degrees C in a log-linear relationship. The slopes of the lines of regression for all three species were not significantly different from one another. Durations of the periods of hibernation for the considerably larger C. columbianus, however, were significantly longer at all… CONTINUE READING
