Thermophysiology of Flying Squirrels
The Star-Oddi loggers are used in a variety of studies, including MSc projects. In one such project, Vanessa Hensley, a MSc student at The University of Maine, studied changes in body temperature of North American southern flying squirrels (Glaucomys volans).
Star-Oddi's DST nano-T temperature loggers were used to measure core body temperature in the animals. This was then used to look into whether high temperatures had an effect on thermoregulation and energy use.
We are always interested in hearing about how our loggers are being used, whether the work is published in a peer-reviewed journal or not. If you would like to share your work with us we would love to hear from you.
