... of apparent digestive efficiency, shaved mice at peak lactation assimilated on average 30.9 kJ day –1 more energy than unshaved individuals. As predicted exclusively by the heat dissipation limit hypothesis, this extra energy was used to generate more milk. Milk production was calculated from the difference...

... present data on the field vole ( Microtus agrestis ) – a previously uncharacterised example of photoperiod-induced changes in body mass. We examined the effect of increased day length on body mass, food intake, apparent digestive efficiency,body composition, de novo lipogenesis and fatty acid composition...
