The minimum torpor body temperature was also tabulated and compared between zones using AN OVA (Zar 1984). Results Daily torpor has been documented in mammals from five of the six zoogeographical zones of the world, namely the Afrotropical, Australasian, Neotropical, Nearctic and Palaearctic (Appendix 1). Hence daily torpor occurs in mammals from all latitudes, from the tropics to the high latitudes. Unfortunately, data appear to be completely lacking for Indomalayan species.

However, only one species, Elephantulus rozeti, occurs north of the Sahara (Morocco), and is hence classified as Palaearctic. The environmental conditions likely to select for daily torpor in this species in the arid highlands of Morocco are likely to mirror those in sub-Saharan Africa (Rathbun 1979), and are markedly different to European environments to which the balance of the Palaearctic species are adapted. E. rozeti would, in this respect, be better classified as Afrotropical. Nevertheless, despite these sources of potential bias, the summary of data in Table 1 reveal several intriguing trends that are certainly worthy of attention in terms of the ecological relevance of daily torpor.
