This combination provides a thermoregulating climate zone ag0ainst the body, so it can be worn in hot or cold weather.
By thermoregulating, island lizards are not just buffering themselves from thermal variation.
Specializing in chemical-free, thermoregulating fabric, Coolcore has partnered with Germany's Hohenstein Institute to develop shirts designed to optimize astronauts' comfort during exercise and everyday wear while on the International Space Station.
These forays away from areas of high prey density only occur during cool water periods, which suggests that animals are behaviorally thermoregulating and not foraging.
The cooling towels' thermoregulating technology works by absorbing moisture and perspiration into the fabric where the unique radiator-like fibre circulates water molecules and regulates the rate of evaporation to create a prolonged cooling effect.
Individuals decrease foraging and thermoregulating behaviors when in copula, though this can be alleviated through nuptial gifts (Watson et al., 1998).
Launched in 2009 by a group of world-class athletes (including Dwyane Wade, Serena Williams, Drew Brees, David Villa and Carli Lloyd), Mission seeks to pioneer thermoregulating innovations to maximize athlete performance and recovery.
In previous experiments, Garden Warblers exposed to high environmental temperatures were shown to not be able to regain much migratory body mass during the stopover period, which is the main objective for migratory birds, likely due to the increases of energy expenditure associated with the costs of thermoregulating and maintaining water balance [41].
They're also naturally thermoregulating - the fibres expand and contract depending on the temperature, making garments comfortable and "breathable".
For safety reasons, core temperatures were measured every 15 min following the exercise bout at 35[degrees]C to ensure that the subjects were properly thermoregulating.
