WHAT DOES HOMEOTHERM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Homeothermy

Homeothermy is thermoregulation that maintains a stable internal body temperature regardless of external influence. This temperature is often, though not necessarily, higher than the immediate environment. It is one of three types of warm-bloodedness, and its opposite is poikilothermy. Homeotherms are not necessarily endothermic. Some Homeotherms may maintain constant body temperatures through behavioral mechanisms alone i.e. behavioral thermoregulation. Many reptiles use this strategy. For example, desert lizards are remarkable in that they maintain near-constant activity temperatures that are often within a degree or two of their lethal critical temperatures.
