Quick Reference

The capability of a species to survive through cold winter seasons and to revive and resume its usual activities when warmer weather returns. The term usually applies to this capability in insects and is in some ways akin to hibernation in certain mammals but differs in that it is a complete cessation, rather than merely a slowing, of metabolic activity.
