Effects of ambient temperature on feeding by herbivorous marsupials

Beale, Phillipa


In this thesis I show that the nutritional decisions of herbivores are tied to the thermal environment they experience. This pertains not just to the total energy eaten, but also to the macronutrients from which they choose to get that energy, and to the plant secondary metabolites (PSMs) that complicate the decision. I have reviewed the literature to show that the relationship between thermal physiology and nutritional ecology runs deeper than simply adjusting food intake to meet changes in...[Show more]
