A hot lunch for herbivores: Physiological effects of elevated temperatures on mammalian feeding ecology

Beale, Phillipa; Marsh, Karen; Foley, William; Moore, Ben D.


Mammals maintain specific body temperatures (Tb) across a broad range of ambient temperatures. The energy required for thermoregulation ultimately comes from the diet, and so what animals eat is inextricably linked to thermoregulation. Endothermic herbivores must balance energy requirements and expenditure with complicated thermoregulatory challenges from changing thermal, nutritional and toxicological environments. In this review we provide evidence that plant-based diets can influence...[Show more]
