Animals at the extremes: Hibernation and torpor

Introduction

Unit image

This is the second in a series of three units on Animals at the extremes. In order to get the most from it, you should have previously studied Animals at the extremes: The desert environment (S324_1) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] . After completing this unit you might like to complete the series by studying Animals at the extremes: Polar biology (S324_3).

This unit is from our archive and it is an adapted extract from Animal physiology (S324), which is no longer in presentation. If you wish to study formally at The Open University, you may wish to explore the courses we offer in this curriculum area.
