    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 148:645-50. 2007
    ..This may reflect a general phylogenetic pattern of metabolic reduction in rodents. On the other hand, this may be related to differences in the social structure of house mice (solitary) and sandy inland mice (communal)...

    J Therm Biol 57:54-65. 2016
    ..This approach may allow broader and more flexible comparison of characteristics of thermoregulation, but it needs testing with a broader array of taxa than those used here. ..

    J Insect Physiol 78:62-8. 2015
    ..It is proposed that Z. nigripes persist despite sensitivity to high temperatures using a combination of behavioural strategies and emergence during a period of relatively benign climate that ameliorates the impacts of high temperatures...
