    Uri Shanas
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa, Oranim, Tivon 36006, Israel
    Physiol Behav 81:645-50. 2004
    ..It is thus suggested that VP could act as a modulator linking the reproductive system with water economy in desert rodents, possibly through its act on the energetic pathways...
  3. ncbi request reprint Comparative non-shivering thermogenesis in adjacent populations of the common spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus) from opposite slopes: the effects of increasing salinity
    Michael Scantlebury
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa at Oranim, Tivon, Israel
    J Comp Physiol B 172:1-5. 2002
    ..We suggest that these differences could be a result of an ongoing adaptive process to different climatic conditions, typical of the Mediterranean region, that are a demonstrable example of evolution in action...
  4. ncbi request reprint Seasonality and seasons out of time--the thermoregulatory effects of light interference
    Abraham Haim
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa Oranim, Kiryat Tivon, Israel
    Chronobiol Int 22:59-66. 2005
    ..These results can at least partly explain why LI-voles died during the winter under field conditions, through eliminating winter acclimatization of the thermoregulatory system, or what is considered as "seasons out of time."..
  5. ncbi request reprint Differential energy costs of winter acclimatized common spiny mice Acomys cahirinus from two adjacent habitats
    Michael Scantlebury
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa Oranim, Tivon 36006, Israel
    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 137:419-23. 2004
    ..We suggest that physiological plasticity in energy expenditure, which exists both temporally and spatially, combined with stable WTO, perhaps reflecting a xeric ancestry, has enabled A. cahirinus to invade a wide range of habitats...
  6. doi request reprint Osmoregulatory traits of broad-toothed field mouse (Apodemus mystacinus) populations from different habitats
    Michael Scantlebury
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa Oranim, Tivon, Israel
    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 154:551-6. 2009
    ..Physiological data pertaining to adaptation to increased xeric conditions, as modelled by A. mystacinus, provides valuable information as to how other species may cope with potential climatic challenges...
  7. doi request reprint Genetic ecotoxicology of asbestos pollution in the house mouse Mus musculus domesticus
    Rachel Ben-Shlomo
    Department of Biology, Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Haifa Oranim, Tivon 36006, Israel
    Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 18:1264-9. 2011
    ..The upper layers of the soil in the vicinity of a former asbestos factory are nearly "saturated" with asbestos fibers and dust. Natural populations of mice dwell in this area and are constantly exposed to asbestos fibers...

    Arian D Wallach
    Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology, University of Haifa, Mount Carmel, Haifa 31905, Israel
    J Wildl Dis 44:693-6. 2008
    ..For most of these ectoparasites, this is the first record on roe deer. All ectoparasite species were documented in Israel prior to the reintroduction program; exotic ectoparasites were not detected...

    Abraham Haim
    Department of Biology, University of Haifa Oranim, Kiryat Tivon, Israel Eden Experimental Farm, Emeq Beit Sheaan, Israel
