Current Opinion in Endocrine and Metabolic Research, Volume 11, April 2020

Climate change is exposing terrestrial mammals to heat and aridity more frequently, limiting the supply of energy and water, with consequences for the survival and performance of mammals. The endocrine system is central to the response of animals to these environmental challenges and the maintenance of homoeostasis in different physiological systems. We review recent research on how the endocrine systems that are responsible for the maintenance of thermoregulation, osmoregulation, metabolism, and reproduction are affected by heat, reduced water, and reduced food availability. Then, we reflect on the value of this knowledge to assess the capacity of terrestrial species to cope with a changing and unpredictable future climate.
