  • Daily and annual cycles in thermoregulatory behaviour and cardio‑respiratory physiology of black and white tegu lizards 

    Sanders, Colin E; Tattersall, Glenn J; Reichert, Michelle; Andrade, Denis V; Abe, Augusto S; Milsom, William K (2015)
    This study was designed to determine the manner in which metabolism is suppressed during dormancy in black and white tegu lizards (Tupinambis merianae). To this end, heart rate (f H), respiration rate (f R), and deep body ...

    Tattersall, Glenn J; Leite, Cleo A.C.; Sanders, Colin E; Cadena, Viviana; Andrade, Denis V; Abe, Augusto S; Milsom, William K (Science Advances, 2016-01)
  • Seasonal reproductive endothermy in tegu lizards 

    Tattersall, Glenn J; Leite, Cleo A.C.; Sanders, Colin E; Cadena, Viviana; Andrade, Denis V; Abe, Augusto S; Milsom, William K (2016)
    With some notable exceptions, small ectothermic vertebrates are incapable of endogenously sustaining a body temperature substantially above ambient temperature. This view was challenged by our observations of nighttime ...
