I am looking forward to seeing whether pteropod communities in the Pacific behave similarly, and if closely related animals show the same response to environmental stress. Environmental physiology of the amphibians. Books & Readers The new updated edition of this accessible text is a summary of the comparative physiology of animals within the context of the environment. Animals submitted to stressful conditions can undergo adaptations to a perturbed homeostasis by compensatory physiological changes (Wendelaar Bonga 1997). There he rose through the professional ranks and became known internationally for his acclaimed research, teaching and outreach programs in farm-animal environmental physiology, behavior and care. Some species enter hypothermia upon food restriction only when isolated from conspecifics in a laboratory environment, while in the field they remain normothermic by huddling. This course requires students to perform a research project. Stress adversely affects every physiological system, thereby introducing a confounding variable into experimental designs. One potential source of stress is the animal housing environment. These observations have even led some authors to question the usefulness of the concept of A few years ago I was teaching one of many sections of an Animal Anatomy and Physiology Course.
