Abstract A large body of thermoregulation studies exists in which the proper relationship between the physiological variable, thermal conductance, and heating or cooling time is not recognized. This is owing, in part, to conflicting definitions of conductance which either fail to relate to mean heat flow through the body surface or which fail to separate body conductance from that of the environment. Here we analyse ectotherm heating and cooling experiments to relate properly, conductance to… Expand
