... Respiratory evaporative water loss Resting metabolic rate Arid environments dominate the Australian landscape, covering almost half of the continent's total land area ( Fisher et al., 1972 ). These environments present significant physiological and life history challenges for organisms. High air...

... primarily on metabolic water production (MWP). The terrestrial apnea demonstrated by seals may reduce respiratory evaporative water loss (REWL) to levels that allow seals to make a net gain of water from MWP. We empirically measured REWL in 13 fasting northern elephant seal pups and determined the effects...

...Andrew E. McKechnie; Blair O. Wolf SUMMARY We investigated changes in the relative contributions of respiratory evaporative water loss (REWL) and cutaneous evaporative water loss (CEWL) to total evaporative water loss (TEWL) in response to short-term thermal acclimation in western white-winged...
