Through this mechanism, copulation could lead to increased energetic costs to locomotion and thermoregulation as well as to increased mortality via predation (Lima and Dill, 1990; Magnhagen, 1991; Fairbairn, 1993).
Workers forage for food resources (proteins, carbohydrates), material for nest building (plant fiber, clay, water) (Jeanne 1996), water for thermoregulation of the colony (Kovac et al.
A baby, born before the 28th week of the pregnancy, can live inside of a newborn incubator with a thermoregulation system.
Thus, the core temperature, and especially the temperature in the brain, is regulated close to 37[degrees]C, with an almost perfect thermoregulation, but at the expense of the skin, which is actually poikilothermic and its temperature resembles the ambient temperature about 33[degrees]C.
They provided definitions, outlined how the body's thermoregulation system works and adverse patient outcomes of unintended perioperative hypothermia.
