Desert dwelling animals are exposed to complex biophysical stressors including heat, physical exhaustion, solar radiation, and unavailability of feed and water, which can cumulatively be referred to as grazing stress (GS). GS affect physiological parameters (PP) including rectal temperature, respiration rate, minute ventilation volume, and heat production. Changes in these traits can be used as indicators to assess (in)tolerance to GS.
