Stressful summers? Torpor expression differs between high- and low-latitude populations of bats
(American Society of Mammalogists, 2017)
Variation in weather and food availability impacts the energy budgets of endotherms, with some species using torpor as an energy-saving strategy during periods of negative energy balance. We evaluated how latitudinal differences ...
Cold and alone? Roost choice and season affect torpor patterns in lesser short‑tailed bats
Seasonal changes in weather and food availability differentially impact energy budgets of small mammals such as bats. While most thermal physiological research has focused on species that experience extreme seasonal ...
Winter climate affects torpor patterns and roost choice in New Zealand lesser short-tailed bats
(Wiley-Blackwell (Zoological Society of London), 2017)
Variation in winter conditions differentially impacts thermoregulation of endotherms, with some species using torpor as an energy-saving strategy during periods of negative energy balance. We evaluated how differences ...
