This book summarises the newest information on seasonal adaptation in animals. Topics include animal hibernation, daily torpor, thermoregulation, heat production, metabolic depression, biochemical adaptations, neurophysiology and energy balance. The contributors to this book present interdisciplinary research at multiple levels ranging from the molecular to the ecophysiological, as well as evolutionary approaches. The chapters of this book provide original data not published elsewhere, which makes it the most up-to-date, comprehensive source of information on these fields. The booka€™s subchapters correspond to presentations given at the 14th International Hibernation Symposium in August 2012 in Austria. This is a very successful series of symposia (held every four years since 1959) that attracts leading researchers in the field. Like the past symposia, this meeting a€“ and consequently the book a€“ is aimed not only at hibernation but at covering the full range of animal adaptations to seasonal environments. For the next four years, this book will serve as the cutting-edge reference work for graduate students and scientists active in this field of physiology and ecology. .Q10 values using approach (1) were indistinguishable: 3.63 at Ta = 20AdC, 3.53 at Ta = 25AdC, and 4.40 at Ta = 29AdC (rmANOVA: F2, 19 = 0.90, p[0.05). These values are above the usual physiological range of Q10 values (2a€“3), suggestinganbsp;...
