Abstract
Whole-body evaporative water loss of the mouse during radiant heating was determined at ambient temperatures of 20-35C. The ratio of evaporated to absorbed heat per gram body weight, which is equal to open-loop gain increased over sixfold with each 1C increase in ambient temperature. A previous estimate of open loop gain for the mouse is similar to the data from this study at an ambient temperature of 35C. Determining OLG with natural ambient stimulation may make future studies in thermoregulation comparable.
