    Department of Biology, Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada K9J 7B8
    Proc Biol Sci 280:20131436. 2013
    ..We conclude that post-hatch temperature reversibly affects adult bill morphology but irreversibly influences the thermal physiological role of bills and may play an underappreciated role in avian energetics. ..

    Gary Burness
    Department of Biology, Trent University, Peterborough, ON, K9J 7B8, Canada
    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 140:11-7. 2005
    ..This suggests that interindividual variation in ATP levels may not be the primary determinant of variation in sperm swimming performance in bluegill...

    Gary Burness
    Department of Biology, Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
    J Exp Biol 213:1386-94. 2010
    ..Our data support recent suggestions that the energetic cost of an immune response may not be the primary mechanism driving trade-offs between immune system function and other fitness-related traits...

    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 166:169-76. 2013
