Physical Principles 1. Heat always flows from area of greater heat energy to lower heat energy. 2. The rate of heat flow is dependent on the temperature differential between the warmer area and the cooler area (larger T causes faster rate of heat flow)

All living things produce heat but. . Depending on the rate of heat production, heat production may or may not affect body temperature.

Plants and animals produce heat at a low rate (poikilothermic or ectothermic)--7-10x lower rate than birds or mammals (homeothermic or endothermic) at same body mass and body temperature Environmental temp log Metabolic rate Environmental temp Tb

Integrator (hypothalamus) cold warm hot output Hypothalamus compares input from sensors with a “setpoint”, and takes preventative action BEFORE body temp. changes 3. Output 1. Motor -shivering 2.
