...Michelle E. Clement; Agustí Muñoz-Garcia; Joseph B. Williams SUMMARY Lipids of the stratum corneum (SC), the outer layer of the epidermis of birds and mammals, provide a barrier to water vapor diffusion through the skin. The SC of birds consists of flat dead cells, called corneocytes, and two lipid...

... 25% lower than that of individuals from a mesic environment. The stratum corneum (SC),the outer layer of the epidermis, serves as the primary barrier to water vapor diffusion through the skin. The avian SC is formed by layers of corneocytes embedded in a lipid matrix consisting of cholesterol, free...

...Agustí Muñoz-Garcia; Joseph B. Williams SUMMARY Birds that live in hot, dry environments must balance water intake with losses in order to maintain water homeostasis. The outer layer of the integument, called the stratum corneum (SC), consists of corneocytes embedded in a matrix of lipids. The SC...

... dunni ), also from the Arabian desert, did not. Here, we test the idea that hoopoe larks acclimated to 35°C would alter the lipid composition of their stratum corneum (SC), resulting in a decrease in CWL, but that skylarks,woodlarks and Dunn's larks would not. Specifically, we hypothesized that hoopoe...
