- v. Simple past tense and past participle of estivate.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Seas were less affected than land, and many shore-based animals that ate marine species neither hibernated nor estivated.
Water pressure dropped with the level; lower temperatures meant a higher equilibrium concentration of dissolved oxygen, which affected the fairly shallow depths at which the People estivated; current shifted, altering the local content of minerals raised from the ocean bed.
