Trading heat and hops for water: Dehydration effects on locomotor performance, thermal limits, and thermoregulatory behavior of a terrestrial toad
Due to their highly permeable skin and ectothermy, terrestrial amphibians are challenged by compromises between water balance and body temperature regulation. The way in which such compromises are accommodated, under a ...
Effect of temperature on growth of the interdital purple snail Plicopurpura pansa (Gould 1835) under laboratory conditions
(Aquaculture Research, 2007)
To determine the optimum temperature for growth of the endangered intertidal purple snail Plicopurpura pansa (Gould 1853) (Prosobranchia, Muricidae), 731 adult specimens were reared in the laboratory on squid for 86 days ...
Effects of Temperature on Intraspecific Competition in Ectotherms
(Univ Chicago Press, 2014-09-01)
Understanding how temperature influences population regulation through its effects on intraspecific competition is an important question for which there is currently little theory or data. Here we develop a theoretical ...

Temperature-enhanced synthesis of DMSO-Melanin
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-01-06)
Melanins are a class of pigmentary conjugated macromolecules found in many biological systems. Functionalization of synthetic melanin provides interesting new properties like the greater solubility of melanin synthesized ...
Dynamic optimization of the mashing process
This work aims to demonstrate the applicability of dynamic optimization to improve the time-temperature schedule of a brewery mashing process, based on kinetic models available in the literature. The mashing process consists ...
Optimization of temperature, sugar concentration, and inoculum size to maximize ethanol production without significant decrease in yeast cell viability
Aiming to obtain rapid fermentations with high ethanol yields and a retention of high final viabilities (responses), a 2(3) full-factorial central composite design combined with response surface methodology was employed ...
