Post-hatch heat warms adult beaks: irreversible physiological plasticity in Japanese quail
(Royal Society Publishing, 2013-08)
Across taxa, the early rearing environment contributes to adult morphological and physiological variation. For example, in birds, environmental temperature plays a key role in shaping bill size and clinal trends across ...
Evaporative respiratory cooling augments pit organ thermal detection in rattlesnakes
Rattlesnakes use their facial pit organs to sense external thermal fluctuations. A temperature decrease in the heat-sensing membrane of the pit organ has the potential to enhance heat flux between their endothermic prey ...
