Lupins in snow  

About this page
While organizing the Phoenix meeting on thermoregulation, I received materials from colleaugues about five scientists in our field who passed away shortly before the meeting. These memorials, now with many additions, are posted here to serve as fitting tributes to our departed friends, colleagues, and teachers who worked on problems of body temperature regulation, broadly defined. Unsolicited submissions are welcome. Subsequent use of most materials posted on this site is also welcome — provided the authors of the materials and this site are credited (Copyright).
