This study tested the hypothesis that the annual cycle in heart rate (HR) in reindeer is, at least in part, a consequence of seasonal fluctuation in voluntary-food intake. Heart rate and daily dry matter voluntary-food intake (DDMVFI) were recorded in two captive female reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) from April 1995 to August 1996. Heart rate was measured continuously in each animal for 20-24 h for 7 days each month using Polar(R) Sport Testers (PST); DDMVFI was measured in each animal… CONTINUE READING
