Thermal stress regulation in animals

Convener: Sharon Schlesinger, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Elevated ambient temperatures are increasing in frequency and can severely affect human and animal wellbeing. It has long been known that heat stress has major impacts on many animal performances, such as health, growth and reproduction. Many studies from various fields aim to understand or mitigate the effect of thermal stress on animals, Research of interest includes, but not limited to: (1) the effect of heat stress on animals’ metabolism and physiology (2) physiological and behavioral thermoregulation strategies (3) monitoring and mitigation of heat stress in animals (4) genetic and epigenetic aspects of resilience to heat stress (5) stress and infertility in animals.
