.... Lipids of the stratum corneum (SC), the outer layer of the epidermis, create the barrier to water vapor diffusion, and thus control cutaneous water loss (CWL). An appreciation of the ability of birds to change CWL by altering lipids of the skin will be important to predict responses of birds to global...

...Agustí Muñoz-Garcia; Jennifer Ro; Johnie C. Brown; Joseph B. Williams SUMMARY Because cutaneous water loss (CWL) represents half of total water loss in birds, selection to reduce CWL may be strong in desert birds. We previously found that CWL of house sparrows from a desert population was about...

... the integument of pioneering terrestrial animals, enabling them to reduce water loss through the skin. In desert environments, where ambient temperatures ( T a ) can reach 50°C, relative humidities are low and drinking water is scarce, integumentary modifications that reduce cutaneous water loss (CWL) could...

...Gilead Michaeli; Berry Pinshow SUMMARY We assessed respiratory and cutaneous water loss in trained tippler pigeons ( Columba livia ) both at rest and in free flight. In resting pigeons, exhaled air temperature T ex increased with ambient air temperature T a ( T ex =16.3+0.705 T a ) between 15°C...
