Abstract : In view of the pathological consequences of artificial cold acclimatization, one may question the relevance of many laboratory studies of the physiological mechanism responsible for the greater caloric capacity observed in animals in the wild during the winter. Any study of the enzymatic, neural or metabolic pathways involved in the non-shivering thermogenic mechanism developed in the artificial laboratory conditions runs the risk of being affected by pathological changes resulting from these conditions.
