Unformatted text preview: environment is a very important and common study of biophysical ecology. Different organisms can use a wide range of heat transfer methods that allow for it to survive and thrive in its environment. Conduction, convection, evaporation and radiation are all heat transfer methods that can help calculate an organism’s metabolic heat and can also calculate changes in heat transfer. Conduction occurs when heat transfers across a temperature gradient from an area of higher kinetic energy to lower kinetic energy. Convection is the conduction of heat through the boundary layer of a fluid as it moves along a surface; an example of convection would be wind moving across or over an...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
