Unformatted text preview: organisms that receive most warmth as energy directly from the environment. Ectotherms have a much slower metabolism than endotherms and therefore these ectotherms, that receive most of their heat from the environment, must Trent 3 depend on their environment and surroundings for heat1. These heat transfers are known as conduction, convection, evaporation and radiation as stated above. This purpose of this experiment is to see how the heat transfer of conduction occurs and affects the body temperature of ectotherms that are placed in two different habitats. We used model ectothermic organisms; the model ectothermic organisms that we choose to use were Peeps. We placed the model...
