Notably, the Australian example involves a large ectothermic predator rather than endotherms as in Africa.
elegans indicate that ectothermic organisms growing at lower temperatures develop larger cells.
When microclimatic variables are involved, site-specific effects should be most important in situations where ectothermic pollinators prevail and unfavorable weather often limits their activity.
The temperature excess in the interior of flowers from arctic and alpine habitats, for example, has been interpreted as a trait enhancing flower visitation by ectothermic insects, but empirical data on reproductive biology of the plants are scarce (Hocking 1968, Kevan 1975, Smith 1975, Knutson 1981).
2004), it is likely that the effects of warming oceans on the ecology of ectothermic herbivores will be complex and context-specific.
Other ectothermic tetrapod vertebrates, however, including hatchling turtles, exhibit substantial repeatability of performance traits (Bennett 1991; Austin and Shaffer 1992; Janzen 1993b).
Molecular chaperones in ectothermic marine animals: biochemical function and gene expression.
Phenotypic variability in natural populations is generally very high because of environmental heterogeneity, especially for small ectothermic polyvoltine species like Drosophila melanogaster (Atkinson 1979; David et al.
Physiological adaptations to temperature in ectothermic species are pervasive and have long been regarded as important in establishing biogeographic patterning along latitudinal thermal gradients (Bullock, 1955).
Internal time of ectothermic animals depends on ambient temperature (Spence et al.
