... ; N =7) and typical mammalian triacylglycerols in short-finned pilot whales ( Globicephala macrorhynchus ; N =7) – on blubber’s thermal properties. Although the blubber of both species had similar total lipid contents, the thermal conductivity of G. macrorhynchus blubber (0.20±0.01 W m –1 °C –1...

... these changes in blubber morphology and composition influence its thermal properties. Thermal conductivity (W m –1 deg. –1 , where deg. is °C) and thermal insulation(m 2 deg. W –1 ) of dolphin blubber were measured in individuals across an ontogenetic series (fetus through adult, N =36),pregnant females ( N =4...
