There are plenty of wild poikilothermic species waiting to reward ambition, skill, and hard work with an interesting and profitable farm business.
However, unlike poikilothermic vertebrates, a great many traits in insects do not conform to theoretical scaling models, at least in terms of their physiological performance (Gabriel 1985a,b; Greenlee & Harrison 2004).
The book lungs constrain oxygen consumption in spiders, which exhibit resting metabolic rates about half those measured for other poikilothermic animals of equal mass (Anderson 1970; Greenstone & Bennett 1980).
These last two instances of temperature elevation were thought to have resulted from the phenomenon of body heat transference to a patient who was poikilothermic and therefore had limited ability to self-regulate body temperature.
This is an important feature for poikilothermic ("cold-blooded") organisms, such as the fruit fly, that do not maintain a constant body temperature.
Because fish are poikilothermic, they do not use feed energy to maintain body temperature.
Cold temperatures are known to alter the metabolic rates of poikilothermic organisms, e.
45 Poikilothermic animals are usually referred to less technically as what?
Group-structured genetic models in analysis of the population and behavioral ecology of poikilothermic vertebrates.
Cultures were incubated at room temperature (21-23[degrees]C) since they came from poikilothermic reptiles.
Specific host defenses of poikilothermic animals have been suggested to be temperature dependent.
The need to make the best use of this radiation during the day is the explanation for the differences in pigmentation between homoeothermic (warm-blooded) animals and poikilothermic (cold-blooded) ones in the mountains.
