Shivering - Heat Production

The mechanism of thermogenesis with which we are more familiar is shivering and all adult birds and mammals seem to use these mechanism. Shivering is a high frequency, relatively uncoordinated contraction of skeletal muscles. All muscular contraction liberates heat, and obviously the conversion of chemical energy into thermal energy becomes the primary function of the contraction.
