Hormonal and metabolic responses to upper temperature extremes in divergent life-history ecotypes of a garter snake
Journal of Experimental Biology
Extreme temperatures constrain organismal physiology and impose both acute and chronic effects. Additionally, temperature-induced hormone-mediated stress response pathways and energetic tradeoffs are important drivers of life-history variation. This study employs an integrative approach to quantify acute physiological responses to high temperatures in divergent life-history ecotypes of the western terrestrial garter snake (Thamnophis elegans). Using wild-caught animals, we measured oxygendoi:10.1242/jeb.143107 pmid:27436139 fatcat:wvzfid5msbeedmrwabb7jxfj3m
