Re: What is an "active ectotherm"?



Jonathan,
        Some fish (perhaps all that swimion water colder than the freezing
point of body fluids-circa 28degrees F) have natural antifreeze in the
body fluids. There have been several papers in the literature in recent
years, centering of the Antarctoc if I remember correctly.
        Keep up the discussion. Someone should summarize the various posts
for a technical article.
