The thermal dependence of locomotor performance and in vitro muscle mechanical properties were studied after acclimation at 10 degrees and 20 degrees C in the salamander Ambystoma tigrinum nebulosum Hallowell. Performance measurements included burst and endurance capacities on land and in water. No significant differences in locomotor performance or muscle contractile properties were found between acclimation groups. Locomotor performance had only a slight thermal dependence, with Q10 values of… CONTINUE READING
