With the use of extensive data tables and figures, this book explains the key facets of rodent thermal physiology including neurological control, metabolism, thermoregulatory effectors, core and brain temperature, circadian rhythm, development and aging temperature acclimation, gender and intraspecies variation, and there is a novel chapter on the effect of trauma, toxic chemicals and other factors.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume is one of the rare reference books that becomes useful the day it arrives in your lab....The more than 700 references for this volume are well selected and a valuable resource by themselves. Thermoregulation is a highly integrated and holistic area of physiology. Consequently, it is an 'orphan' branch of life sciences, and the relevant literature is scattered far and wide across time and among disciplines. The references reflect a scholarly search of the literature based on a career-long interest in thermal physiology. Another key ingredient for a useful reference volume is the index. Here again this book excels in providing a comprehensive index of key terms to direct readers to ideas that are often spread throughout the book....[W]ell illustrated with carefully selected and informative graphs and charts." Stephen C. Wood, The Physiologist
