Warm and cold receptors play a part in sensing innocuous environmental temperature.
In cases of extreme low environmental temperatures, it may actually be necessary to heat the electronic components to achieve satisfactory operation.
Most have the ability to lower the body temperature close that of the environmental temperature.
Temperature control is another challenge because of how wavelengths tend to drift with environmental temperatures.
In this situation, the body's tolerance for high environmental temperature may be insufficient, even at rest.
Infective J1 stage larvae develop within the shell in 3 weeks to 2 months, depending on environmental temperature.
However, flying insects raise their body temperature through the action of flight, above environmental temperatures.
Very rare in turtles where the gender of developing embryos are usually determined by environmental temperatures.
Given its montane distribution, this large bat seems well adapted to cool environmental temperatures.
I equilibrate the subject to a prevailing environmental temperature for about half an hour.
