..., and we suggest that it is more likely to have a primarily thermoregulatory, rather than a water balance, role. As such, we conclude that EWL at and below the TNZ should not be termed passive EWL ( IUPS Thermal Commission, 2003 ), as there is now clear evidence that this insensible EWL is not passive...
