The duration of rat decomposition was related to the temperature because the poikilothermic
invertebrate decomposers need a suitable temperature to degrade the carcass.
Age-related changes in catalase activity and its inhibition by manganese (II) chloride in the brain of two species of poikilothermic
tabaci is poikilothermic
, even though the lower thermal threshold for B.
Clams, like most poikilothermic
animals, are incapable of internal thermal regulation, which means that physiological processes are primarily influenced by ambient water temperature.
(2) Cluster II strains were found in poikilothermic
species causing chronic disease.
In Namibia, like in most other developing countries, the majority of snake bites result from the overlap of human and snake habitats, domiciliation of rodents (main prey of most snakes), the nocturnal and heat seeking poikilothermic
nature of snakes, and accidents during snake handling.
On exam, the left anterior calf and foot were ecchymotic and poikilothermic
, and there were multiple tender, raised red lesions consistent with Osler nodes at the plantar surface of the right foot (Figure 1).
In the post-hatch period, the chicks act as poikilothermic
animals and become completely homeothermic, at about 10 days of age (Willemsen et al., 2010).
While the exact mechanism remains unclear, core temperature has also been shown to increase during restraint in many avian, mammalian, and poikilothermic
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.
Models of poikilothermic
cold tolerance suggests a strategy that permits freezing (i.e.
Upon presentation, he had a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) of 12/15 (E3V3M6), and a physical examination revealed a pale, pulseless, and poikilothermic
left lower extremity.
