J Exp Biol jeb.246483.
Published: 21 February 2024
...Elizabeth J. Rogers; Alexander R. Gerson Animals can cope with dehydration in a myriad of ways, both behaviorally and physiologically. The oxidation of protein produces more metabolic water per kJ than that of fat or carbohydrate, and it is well established that birds increase protein catabolism...

.... In ectotherms, changes to both metabolism and behaviour can help alleviate thermal stress. Nonetheless, no study in any ectotherm has yet empirically investigated how changing temperatures affect among-individual differences in the associations between these traits. Using the beadlet anemone ( Actinia equina...

...Pablo Padilla; Anthony Herrel; Mathieu Denoël ABSTRACT Invasive species are characterized by their ability to establish and spread in a new environment. In alien populations of anurans, dispersal and fitness-related traits such as endurance, burst performance and metabolism are key to their success...

... in metabolic rate from larvae to adult. Then, using historical tag–recapture data, we estimated the movement propensity and migratory pace of autumn migrants using computer simulations and subsequently calculated energy expenditure. Finally, we estimated the energy use of monarchs based on these tag–recapture...

However, the direct measurement of total metabolic energy savings during collective motion compared with solitary movement over a range of speeds has yet to be documented. In particular, longer duration and higher speed collective motion must involve both...

We explore the role of the aerobic diving limit, body size, oxygen stores, prey distribution and metabolism. We then identify gaps in our knowledge and suggest areas for future research...

... swimming speed ( U crit ) of male offspring was greatest when both parents were raised at 28°C, and warmer fathers produced daughters with greater U crit . Similarly, warmer fathers produced sons and daughters with greater metabolic capacity. We show that the thermal variation experienced by parents can...

... biology hypothesis, variation in prenatal exposure to hormones is likely to influence telomere length. Yet, the contribution of key metabolic hormones, i.e. thyroid hormones (THs), has been largely ignored. We recently showed that in contrast to predictions, exposure to elevated prenatal THs increased...

Therefore, the upper threshold temperatures at which endurance capacity is impaired are similar to those inducing heat responses at rest...

... the differing capacities of lizards to depress body temperature ( T b ) through evaporative cooling via panting. Here, we link panting and T b depression with rates of evaporative water loss and its metabolic costs under high heat loads. We used flow-through respirometry to measure evaporative water loss rates...
