NBAF908 NBAF-L (pilot competition) Natalie Hicks, Scottish Association for Marine Science The influence of bacteria on benthic ecosystem processes in a changing climate.Whereas the typical U-shaped curve describes the relationship between and MR at rest, thermoregulatory polygons expand this framework to incorporate the impact of activity, other behaviors and environmental conditions on thermoregulation and energy balance. Swanson for discussions at different stages of the conception of this manuscript and comments on previous drafts, and Ian Hume and four anonymous reviewers for their extensive comments on the original submission. We discuss how this framework can be employed to study the limits to effective thermoregulation and their ecological repercussions, allometric effects and residual variation in MR and thermal insulation, and how thermoregulatory requirements might constrain locomotor or reproductive performance (as proposed, for instance, by the heat dissipation limit theory).

In endotherms, however, we contend that the lack of theoretical developments that translate current physiological understanding into formal mechanistic models remains the main impediment to study the ecological and evolutionary repercussions of thermoregulation.
