Body Temperature Dynamics in Small Mammals and Birds in 10-120-min Period Range

  • Published:
Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine Aims and scope

The dynamics of intraperitoneal body temperature was analyzed in males of C57BL/6 mice and common greenfinches (Chloris chloris). Despite the membership in different classes, these mammals demonstrated the identical set of harmonics in body temperature spectra. The study revealed synchronicity of body temperature oscillations in distantly isolated animals. The data suggest that body temperature oscillations in 10-120-min (circahoralian) period range reflect the effect of an external environmental biotropic factor on temperature control in small mammals and birds.
