Passing rewarming saves energy

I came across a neat study published recently in the American Journal of Physiology – Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology which examined how bats arouse from hibernation, a period during which their body temperature and metabolism are low. To minimize the high energetic costs of warming up during arousal, bats use solar radiation or take…

Day 4 of the meeting turned out to be pretty exciting for a comparative physiologist as well. The first session that I went to was called “RNASEQ approaches to understanding extreme physiological adaptations.” Considering the Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology section business and dinner meeting was the night before, I was impressed at my ability to…
