Thermoregulation in Free-Living Antarctic Seals: The Missing Link in Effective Ecological Modeling
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-43779

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Despite being an essential physiological component of homeotherm life in polar regions, little is known about the energetic requirements for thermoregulation in either air or water for high- latitude seals. In a joint field and modeling study, the principal investigators will quantify these costs for the Weddell seal under both ambient air and water conditions. The field research will include ...
