Several strategies for surviving this climate are listed below. Select the physiological strategy that is correctly matched with a time scale and level of organization. A)  Arctic fox curls in a ball to reduce exposure to the ambient temperature (= chronic, whole organism response). The  Learning  Team:  Professors   impact  organisms  on   different  ▯me  scales   B)  Arctic fox fur thickness increases in autumn (= acute, organ system). C)  Arctic fox body fat content is lowest in July and highest in November (= generational, macromolecular). D)  Arctic fox reduces metabolic rate to save energy through the winter when prey are scarce (= acute, molecular). E)  Arctic fox has small ears, a short muzzle, relatively short legs and small rounded body that limits heat loss in the cold (= generational, whole organism).
