I have been looking for a reference that compares and contrasts brown and white adipose tissue (in humans) in a concise (preferably tabular, but that's not completely necessary) manner. I haven't found one yet. So I was thinking of posting a question asking for such a reference, along with my own simple table that I've been compiling along the way, in case anyone thought of commenting on it /critiquing it /adding to it . Is that an acceptable question ?
That sounds useful, but I don't really think this fits into the Q+A format SE is going for: not only is it asking for a list with no clear "right" answer, if people post replies it has the potential to become a list of lists. I'm curious to know what you've been compiling it from: if your sources are well cited it seems like a perfect addition to Wikipedia.
As for the asking where you'd find such a reference: I'm not sure what the biology.SE stance is on asking for references (comments welcome).
