Discuss Concepts Shivering increases air movement over the body surface. What effect does this air movement have on heat conservation in the shivering animal?

Summary Introduction

To review:

The effect of increased air movement during shivering in an animal on heat conservation.

Introduction:

The shivering response occurs in animals when their core temperature falls below a set point. This action limits the loss of body heat due to convection. This is hence one of the ways adopted by the endotherm animals to conserve body heat.

Explanation

When thermoreceptors recognize a fall in the core temperature, the hypothalamus triggers a series of autonomic responses to compensate for this loss. One of such responses is shivering in which the skeletal muscles contract involuntarily leading to a rise in heat production...
