- Scientists Have Long Debated Whether Dinosaurs Were Endotherms or Ectotherms
- "The temperatures we measured suggest that some dinosaurs were not fully endotherms like modern birds," Eagle says. "They may have been intermediate--somewhere between modern alligators and crocodiles, and modern birds. That's the implication for ...
- Animals' Choices To Migrate Or Hibernate
- Ectothermic species (reptiles and amphibians) hibernate because they cannot generate enough body heat to stay warm or to digest food even if food is plentiful. Endotherms like mammals hibernate so they can survive with very little food and water during ...
- Boffins believe dinosaurs were Endotherms not Ectotherms
- New research suggests that dinosaurs were likely more similar to what scientists have called “warm-blooded” mammals than previously indicated. A group of researchers led by author Michael D'Emic of Stony Brook University have found evidence that ...
- Seasonal reproductive endothermy in tegu lizards
- Increased metabolic rates and decreased thermal conductance are the same mechanisms involved in body temperature regulation in those vertebrates traditionally acknowledged as “true endotherms”: the birds and mammals. The appreciation that a modern ...
- Ever wondered about warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals?
- Endotherms are animals that keep their body temperature stable as a result of their metabolism, a word for the chemical activity in their cells. Cells are like tiny machines that make chemicals for energy and growth.
Endotherms is described in multiple online sources, as addition to our editors' articles, see section below for printable documents, Endotherms books and related discussion.
