Classification of connective tissue LOOSE: holds in place, fills, water reservoir DENSE: Attachments, barriers tendons (muscle to bones), ligaments (bones to bones) dermis EX: ADVANTAGES OF ECTOTHERM -tolerates variation in food supply -tolerates less predictable environment -broader range of sizes > 80 -90% of mammal species are less than 20g Length to diameter has higher variabili ty -freedom from heat-conserving constraints -more efficient in producing biomass (large number of offsprings) -biomass production instead of Temp of body Ectotherms normally don’t tolerate rapid temp change Heliotherm- heat source from sun Thigmotherm- heat source from earth >conduction radiation convection

Unformatted text preview: ISOENZYMES… different versions of same enzyme “Enzyme would acclimate to work best at a certain temp” As animals get larger less SA/volume less radiation surface for heat exchange per volume FATS has boundary of layers…feathers don’t. ANS regulates… Heart rate Salivary glands Activity of digestive tract Vasotone PO/AH >>>>>>>>> PHAT !!!!!!!! Pituary vasotone- decrease MR Higher brain clusters ANS> sweating…decrease MR and change vasotone Thermal Receptor (sensory = put 38 degrees C ) ENDOCRINE SIMPLE- chemical stimulus trigger hormones NEUROSECRETORY- action potential triggers hormones...
