Let those who like to evaluate using vague terms such as 'appears to be well-managed' go and do some reading up -- just studying thermoregulation in captive elephants should keep them occupied -- and perhaps learn some sense and even compassion.
A 1993 study first linked infant thermoregulation and respiratory control to SIDS, (10) and in 2008 scientists reported that the use of a fan in an infant's bedroom appeared to help reduce SIDS risk.

Furthermore, 10 FOCS2 3602 SL-K-S air source chillers in a compact and super low-noise version have been installed because they are able to adapt easily to different thermal load conditions thanks to the precise thermoregulation and so to optimize the cost - performance ratio.
The finding provides the first evidence that controlling body temperature, or thermoregulation, is the main reason for the stripes and the patterns they form.
Addressing heat stress, particularly for firefighters, soldiers, and farmworkers, Donelan aided Assistant Professor Huiju Park's development of cooling textiles that use the body's natural thermoregulation.
Based on AMUT's PA 1000 model, the thermoforming unit has been especially optimised to treat HIPS material and to avoid the breakage of the very fragile structure through special transport system, heating oven, machine movement, thermoregulation and thermodynamic loop performances.
Behavioral thermoregulation can be adaptive in two complementary ways: (1) it can help an organism avoid extreme heat or cold that could be damaging or lethal (Kelsch & Neill 1990) and (2) it can increase the time an animal spends at optimal physiological temperatures (Huey 2003).
The correlation between birth weight and thermoregulation capacity of piglets in challenging situations by cold was also described in other researches (Herpin et al.
