Authors: Reynolds, John E.
Rommel, Sentiel A.
Keywords: thermal biology
marine mammals
Trichechus manatus latirostris
Issue Date: 6-Jun-2005
Publisher: Mote Marine Laboratory, Sarasota, FL.
Series/Report no.: Mote Technical Report ;
No. 1016
Abstract: This report describes a project with the goals to assess the thermogenic ability of manatees, to measure how foraging effects thermogenesis and overall thermoregulatory ability, to measure the amount and locations of heat flux between the manatee and the environment, to assess how to measure body temperature in a manner which is biologically meaningful and clinically efficacious, and to understand the extent to which thermal profiles may indicate overall clinical stress in manatees.
