Temperature

Heat transfer between animals and environment


Temperature

What’s the difference between temperature & heat?

Measure of intensity of heat

Total KE

(calories or joules)

(oC, oF, K)

Same temp,

Different heat content

1 Calorie

= energy required to raise 1g of water 1o C

How many calories to heat 1g water from 25o C to 50o C?

= 25 calories

How many calories to heat 100g water from 25o C to 50o C?

= 2500 calories


Temperature

=

Body temperature depends on heat stored

Gains > losses


Temperature

Heat flows from warmer cooler

4 Mechanisms of heat transfer

  • Conduction

  • Conduction + Convection

  • Radiation

  • Evaporation

“The Rules”

Greater temperature gradient, greater flux

Physical properties matter


Temperature

1. Conduction

= heat transfer between bodies in direct physical contact

  • temperature differential

  • area of contact

• conductivity of materials


Temperature

2. Convection

CONDUCTION ONLY

CONDUCTION AND

CONVECTION

Hot object

Hot object

= bulk movement of fluid

- Accelerates heat transfer between a solid and a fluid

Why?

Boundary Layer is Removed


Temperature

2. Convection

…All fluids come to rest at a solid surface

Air reaches full speed

Air reaches full speed

= “boundary layer”

Fluid speed

0

Distance from solid surface

Size of boundary layer is influenced by:

Thicker boundary layer, less heat loss to conduction

  • size (and shape) of animal

  • surface roughness

  • fluid speed (air, H2O)


Temperature

3. Radiation

Short wavelengths

Surface temperature is important:

-intensity

T4

Long wavelengths

= transfer of heat between objects without contact

Above absolute zero, all objects emit & receive radiation

-hotter surface, shorter wavelengths

Area of radiative surface is, too


Temperature

4. Evaporation

=Extremely effective method of losing heat

@ 35o C, it takes 580 cal to vaporize 1g of H2O!

  • exposure of moist surfaces

  • moisture gradient

Enzymes

Temperature

Heat Shock Proteins

  • Under High Temperatures, Proteins unfold (denature)

How can you protect

Cells during protein denaturation?


Temperature

“Heat Shock Proteins” protect against heat damage

  • = proteins synthesized in response to cellular stress (including high temps)

  • function as “molecular chaperones”

Heat increases

Protein denatures from Heat

HSP expression increases (more HSP)

HSP binds up denatured protein

Heat decreases

HSP lets go, protein can refold


Cataglyphis ants

Cataglyphis Ants

>50C on sand

45C in nest entrance

Cataglyphis spend 10-15 minutes

In the tunnel to the nest, making heat shock proteins to protect their cells while they are out on the desert foraging

Other insects stop foraging

<30C inside nest

Extreme Cold! (ectotherms)

Avoid Freezing

Tolerate Freezing


Temperature

How do some ectotherms deal with extreme cold?

Avoid Freezing

Option 1: use antifreeze compounds

  • colligative antifreezes

= lower freezing point by colligative properties

e.g., glycerol, sorbitol, mannitol

  • Non-colligative antifreezes

= lower freezing point b/c of special chemical properties


Temperature

Non-colligative antifreezes:

Glycoprotein- polar groups; bind to ice crystals & prevent their growth

(lowers the temp at which ice crystals enlarge)


Temperature

Non-colligative antifreezes:

expression of genes for antifreeze protein increase seasonally…

…and freezing point decreases seasonally in winter flounder.


Antifreeze colligative and non colligative

Antifreeze—colligative and non-colligative

Temperature

How do some ectotherms deal with extreme cold?

Avoid Freezing

Option 1: use antifreeze compounds

Option 2: supercooling*

-with gradual cooling, a liquid may remain unfrozen well below its freezing point…

-…in the absence of ice nucleating agents

* Lowers the temperature at which ice crystals form


Temperature

Option 3: promote extracellular ice formation…

(65% frozen)

(70% frozen)

(50% frozen)

Promoting extracellular ice formation

  • animals must remain inactive

  • ice formation is restricted to extracellular fluid
