  1. Seminars • Apr. 21 “Invasion! Immigration and spread of Bromus tectorum genotypes across North America: genetic and historical evidence”, Richard N. Mack, Professor, School of Biological Sciences, Washington State University, Pullman, WA • May 19 “Indirect effects of fishing on predators and their prey”, Chris Stallings, Affiliate Scientist, Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory, St. Teresa, FL • May 26 “What can ice worms (Mesenchytraeus solifugus) tell us about glacial history of the Pacific Northwest?”, Peter Wimberger, Associate Professor, Biology Dept., University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA

  2. Temperature Regulation and Adaptation I. Introduction A. Reasons for regulating temperature II. Basic heat balance equation A. The components B. The equation Terms: homeotherms, endotherms, poikilotherms, ectotherms III. Adaptations for temperature regulation and tolerance A. Regulating – manipulating the heat balance equation B. Avoiding – dormant stages

  3. Tolerance – effects of environmental change? Chuckwalla, Valley of Fire http://www.richard-seaman.com/Reptiles/Usa/Nevada/ValleyOfFire/

  4. Temperature regulating behaviors in lizards

  5. I. Introduction • Reasons for regulating temperature • Metabolic limits, enzyme kinetics • Behavioral consequences

  6. Q10

  7. A. Introduction

  8. Behavioral consequences - animals

  9. Behavioral consequences - plants

  10. Terms • Homeotherms • Endotherms • Poikilotherms • Ectotherms Heterotherms

  11. II. The heat balance equation A. The components Or gain (Hir) Loss only! (Unless including condensation)

  12. Body size and basal metabolic rate

  13. Basal metabolic rate – endos & ectos

  14. B. The equation

  15. Temp balance for a mussel – constant conditions

  16. Temp balance for a mussel – variable conditions

  17. III. Adaptations for regulation & tolerance • Regulation – manipulating components of the energy balance equation. • 1. Adaptations & acclimations • 2. Similarities and differences among plants, endos & ectos.

  18. Similarities – radiation, coloration Clear-winged grasshopper Encelia farinosa – desert brittlebush http://www.botgard.ucla.edu/html/botanytextbooks/generalbotany/shootfeatures/generalstructure/leafcolor/a0893tx.html

  19. What about the arctic fox? Winter coloration Summer coloration http://www.biosbcc.net/ocean/marinesci/04benthon/arclife.htm

  20. Radiation: Orientation

  21. Evaporative cooling http://www.css.cornell.edu/faculty/hmv1/watrshed/Etrans.htm http://www.ci.ann-arbor.mi.us/SafetyServices/EmergencyManagement/EMD/heatwave.html http://www.kateconnick.com/postcards/bcpant.jpg

  22. Morphology/growth form: conduction & convection Black-tailed jackrabbit http://homestudy.ihea.com/wildlifeID/043jackrabbit.htm

  24. Metabolic heat

  25. Differences • Does the prevalence of some mechanisms differ among plants, endotherms, and ectotherms? • Which ones? Why?

  26. B. Avoidance • Dormancy – plants (seeds, cold tolerance) • Burrowing, torpor, hibernation & estivation - animals

  27. Summary • Range shifts often tied to temperature extremes. • We can understand components of heat balance individually. • Adaptations for heat gain/loss: understand in the context of individual components of heat balance equation.
