To escape from this servitude, one needs a high and constant body temperature:
one has to be a "homoeotherm", as most mammals and nearly all birds are. That
is why Barcroft in his book, The architecture of physiological functions, gave as a
Husbandry of laboratory animals
At this point in the animal living at a constant temperature, there is a state of
quiescence in the thermoregulatory mechanisms, whereas the homoeotherm
living outdoors, and therefore subjected to fluctuating conditions, will be obliged
to face ...
