In crocodilian species—the most studied of which is the American alligator— both low and high temperatures result in females and intermediate temperatures select for males. Although the specific mechanisms for the long lifespan of mice with a lower core T b remain unknown, an increase in energy efficiency was observed that appears to be related to the reduced metabolic temperature-dependent sex determination invertebrates animals in Brampton to maintain a lower T b Conti et al.
If the larva is attracted to a female's proboscis, it travels along the tube until it enters the female's body. We hope these considerations, although speculative, will stimulate further work on the important topic of temperature effects on species longevity.

Bot Rev 59 : — Cnidarians have two main body forms: the cylindrical tentacled polyp, exemplified by the hydra and the sea anemone, and the bell-shaped or inverted saucer-shaped medusa. Science — It would appear that the testis pathway is more changeable than the ovarian pathway although this cannot be confirmed in the absence of master ovary factors.

Another role which has been established for UCP is in the reduction of ROS production when up-regulated and it has been proposed that this is one of the factors which might contribute to the link between lower T b and longevity Carrillo and Flouris Gerontologia — There are certainly many known examples of fish and amphibians with GSD, in which both high and low incubation temperatures can cause sex reversal.
Nonetheless, to our knowledge, there is no invertebrate species in which longevity has been shown to increase with temperature, with the exception of pathological effects at very low temperatures. Moreover, BAT activity and mass decline with age, even if this is much more pronounced in men than in women Pfannenberg et al.
Some other rodent studies have failed to observe a fall in T b in CR but this may be due to the use of a rectal probe to measure T b which requires some form of restraint resulting in physiological stress to the rodent which thus may prevent a fall in T b Lane et al.
