and critical thermal limits of the angelfish Pterophvllum scalare (Lichtenstein) (Pisces: Cichlidae).
Because thermoregulatory behavior
influences body condition (van Beest and Milner 2013), which in turn influences reproduction and survival (Cameron et al.
of the crayfish Procambarus clarki in a burrow environment.
While sample size limits the inferences which can be drawn from this case study, we describe a thermoregulatory behavior
undocumented for moose, though not uncommon for other ungulates.
These results provide evidence that snakes select hibernacula (the sites where the snakes spend the winter) or employ thermoregulatory behaviors
to maintain relatively warm winter body temperatures and that different individuals experience different body temperatures during the winter.
Explanations for wallowing behavior are: (1) a nonsocial behavior that provides relief from skin irritation during shedding, (2) a nonsocial behavior that provides relief from skin irritation caused by biting insects, (3) a nonsocial behavior for defense from ectoparasites (ticks and lice), (4) a social behavior associated with group cohesion, (5) a social behavior associated with male conflict and the rut, (6) a play behavior and/or (7) a thermoregulatory behavior
Pregnant females may increase thermoregulatory behavior
to enhance the rate and efficiency of embryogenesis.
Evolution and coadaptation of thermoregulatory behavior
and wing pigmentation pattern in pierid butterflies.
However, there is no agreement in the literature about the ways in which movement behaviors influence, and are restricted by, thermoregulatory behavior
(but see Hillman 1969, Anderson and Karasov 1988).
