Thermoregulation

In this module, students will:

  • Understand the relevancy of temperature to understand the physiology of animals.
  • Use scientific practices to quantify and compare how morphology influences thermal exchange with the environment.
  • Understand how the environment and animal morphology influences the physiological process of thermal balance and exchange.
  • Develop protocols for future iteration, collaboration and discovery of thermal balance in animals.

  • Guide: Skinning Birds Resources (websites)

Notes:

  • For remote labs, at-home items (animal skins or simulated materials, ice bath / hot water bath, thermometer) or small kits may be used.
  • Graduate students are available to assist in teaching this lab remotely. Depending on travel and availability, they may be able to teach in person.
