Levesque quoted on CBC’s Quirks and Quarks

Danielle Levesque, assistant professor of mammalogy and mammalian health at the School of Biology and Ecology, was featured on CBC’s Quirks and Quarks answering listener questions about animal body temperatures. Levesque said mammals’ normal body temperature ranges from 30 to 41 degrees Celsius because outside of that range, mammalian proteins and enzymes either don’t function or they unfold and become permanently damaged.
