- Thermoregulation: keeping body temperature from being too hot or too cold.
It is not always possible to see the inside of a working laboratory. These are places where scientists are learning about life on Earth. They may not be the CSI-type environment you see on television or in the movies, but they are just as amazing and in some cases even more amazing than what Hollywood could dream up.
Dr. Biology drops in on biologist Michael Angelletta and the researchers in his labortory. Besides getting a fun tour of the place, he learns how they study animals and their methods of heating and cooling their bodies. You can also read more about professor Angelletta in Hot Reserch.
