Behavioural Control of Heat Exchange with the Environment

  • Claus Jessen


As mentioned before, the thermoneutral zone comprises the central range of envi ronmental conditions in which temperature regulation is achieved entirely by con trol of dry heat loss. The limits of the range are defined by the lower and upper critical temperatures, below or above which heat production or evaporative heat loss must increase in order to maintain the thermal balance [503].
