The changes of gaseous metabolism and thermoregulation in hibernating and estivating rodents are treated in the literature principally as regards the process of development of hypothermia. On the other hand the characteristics of thermogenesis in spontaneous reanimation, during the transition from hypothermia to the normal thermal state, have been comparatively little studied. In the present research an attempt was made to study the thermogenetic capacities of certain rodent species during the process of rewarming after hypothermia.
