... metabolic heat production on a subset of elephants ( N =7). The rate of cutaneous evaporative water loss ranged between 0.31 and 8.9 g min −1 m −2 for Asian elephants and 0.26 and 6.5 g min −1 m −2 for African elephants. Simulated thermal and water budgets using climate data from Port Elizabeth, South...
