... poorly understood. All of this is beginning to change. This Review provides a comparative perspective on mechanisms of wound healing and regeneration, with a focus on lizards as an emerging model. Not only are lizards able to regrow cartilage and the spinal cord following tail loss, some species can also...

... with the observed body temperature displacements and our knowledge of regional cold sensitivity. When T a was lowered from 28 to −10 °C, the threefold increase in MR was accompanied by a significant increase in deep-body and spinal cord temperatures. Cold exposure also resulted in a distinct rise in breast skin...
