Aestivation: Molecular and Physiological Aspects

A number of animal species stay in environments characterised through a seasonal aid within the availability of water, which regularly yet now not consistently happens whilst temperatures are optimum. for plenty of such animals, survival through the hardest season calls for spending lengthy sessions of time in a slightly inactive country often called aestivation.

Biology of Inorganic Nitrogen and Sulfur
