Poikilotherms are animals whose body temperature varies with that of the environment. Hibernation is a dormant condition in which many poikilothermic (cold-blooded) animals pass the winter in cold areas . It involves the dropping of an animal's body temperature on a seasonal basis in order to conserve energy. Any mammal that remains inactive for many weeks with a body temperature lower than normal may be said to be in hibernation, but physiological changes that occur during hibernation differ

Animals that hibernate shelter themselves from harsh winter and reduce their need for food. Their body temperatures are considerably lower, as well as their heartbeat and breathing.

Wetlands Wetlands occur throughout the world and support a wide variety of plants and animals. Wetlands are areas, other than lakes or rivers, whose soils are saturated with water for indefinite or prolonged periods of time.

Effects of Acid Rain on Water The effects of acid rain are most clearly seen in the aquatic, or water, environments, such as streams, lakes, and marshes. Acid rain flows to streams, lakes, and marshes after falling on forests, fields, buildings, and roads. Acid rain also falls directly on aquatic habitats. Most lakes and streams have a pH between 6 and 8. However, some lakes are naturally acidic even without the effects of acid rain. Lakes and streams become acidic (pH value goes down) when the

Mark Twain, one of the most prolific writers in American history, used his previous experiences as an inspiration for his most widely acclaimed literary works. By reading and studying his books, one learns many things about the type of life he led. In some novels, an individual reader can experience his childhood adventures first hand. In his later works there are portions about the importance of love in the family, but, of course, there is always the indomitable wisecrack. John Marshall Clemen
