...-shivering thermogenesis was not reinforced by sea acclimatization. This result suggests that king penguins mainly rely on skeletal muscle contraction (shivering or locomotor activity) to maintain endothermy at sea. Sea-acclimatized immature penguins also exhibited higher shivering efficiency and oxygen...

We investigated at what age the precocial king quail Coturnix chinensis can defend a high T b under a mild thermal challenge and whether they can express torpor soon after achieving endothermy to overcome...

... (cold-induced V̇ O 2 ,max ). However, it is unclear how selection at HA for shivering thermogenesis acts early in the development of small altricial mammals, which are born with immature skeletal muscles and without the capacity for homeothermic endothermy. We have previously shown that postnatal...

...Vincent Careau; Bethany J. Hoye; Terence W. O'Dwyer; William A.

Attempts to validate this model in...
