  • There's just no way around it: I am a cold-adapted life form.

    they keep building all these big buildings and they build them all in one-- --spot.

  • Although adaptation to low temperature probably entails a form of compensation involving relative growth acceleration of high-latitude forms at low temperature, the shift in metabolism increases metabolic costs at higher temperatures, leaving cold-adapted forms with an energetic disadvantage in the higher-temperature environments [20] that are likely to result from climate change.

  • Sika are ecotone deer that have been around since the Pliocene, and the larger cold-adapted forms of the species appear especially close to the ancestry of the apparently more advanced red deer.

  • In a similar manner, after the retreat of the glaciers, cold-adapted communities, such as cranberry bogs, remained in refugia in cooler portions of the Appalachians, well south of their usual range.

  • Big cold-adapted Pleistocene mammoths and rhinos are regarded by Geist as grotesque giants, as are big bears and, most interestingly, neanderthals and modern humans.

  • You can read more about this in the paper (along with notes on the lizard's cold-adapted physiology, which is unusual in a tropical species), which can be downloaded here.
