temperatures (Ta) exceed body temperature (Tb). Whereas diurnal
birds can potentially ...

Endotherms allocate large amounts of energy and water to the regulation of a precise body temperature (Tb), but can potentially reduce thermoregulatory costs by allowing Tb to deviate from normothermic levels. Many data ...
