What is a Vivarium Room? The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include anything from a small aquarium in a teenager's room, to the dolphinarium at Sea World. For research purposes, vivarium rooms are also referred to as animal research facilities, and their purpose is to store animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These kinds of microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing organisms in a specific environment, or safely housing experimental animals. Important Environmental Controls in Vivarium Rooms in St. Paul, MN There are a variety of environmental controls needed for a well-functioning vivarium room. For your needs in St. Paul, MN, you'll need to ensure your controlled environment room can properly sustain: Lighting — Different organisms have adapted to different levels of light and heat. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals need sunlight to warm themselves, while other animals thrive in colder, darker environments. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and your vivarium room may need a regulator to replicate light and dark periods. Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different life forms can only survive with a temperature and humidity similar to their natural habitat. Heat can be sourced from a building's system or heat lamps. Ventilation — Proper air flow is imperative for circulating air, stopping mold accumulation, reducing the growth of harmful bacteria, and balancing the ventilation between the vivarium room and other areas of your facility. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you. An animal or plant's physical environment is as important as anything to keeping them healthy.
