... lethal hyperthermia ( Table 3 ). Overall, we found that desert cricetids have a very limited ability to cool evaporatively and are unable to maintain a T a – T b gradient of more than a few degrees Celsius. We also found limited seasonal variation in evaporative cooling ability, with winter animals...
