ABSTRACT
Reports on the finding of biology professor Greg Florant that belies the tradition that the awakening of hibernating mammals marks the coming of winter. Overproduction of linoleic and linolenic acids needed in moderate amounts for successful hibernation; Increase in food requirements of hibernating animals due to overproduction of the said acids.
