Endothermy is a process where energy in the form of heat is absorbed from the surrounding. Opposite of this is exothermy. This is studied with reference to chemistry and therm…odynamics. ( Full Answer )
- can maintain relatively constant body temperature so enzymes etc can specialise to function at a certain temperature..
- can invade colder environments than ectotherm becau…se they can increase their body temperature. ( Full Answer )
To answer this question, you have to first understand whatendothermy is. Endothermy is an animal's ability to control itsbody temperature. It affects an animal's need for food… becauseregulating a body temperature requires huge amounts of energy, sothe animal must eat more even when food is not readily available. ( Full Answer )
endotherms are mammals like you and me who produce their own body heat and maintain a constant internal condition. Ectotherms are animals whose internal temperature is greatl…y influenced by its own environment. ( Full Answer )
