Professor Prinzinger, at the zoology department of the
University of Frankfurt, has, for over 25 years,
written consistently on the use of torpor in various
dinosaur taxa (trochilids, Colius, etc.), as well as
energy costs of growth stages. He is a scholar worth
studying for insights into metabolisms, in both German
and English.
