.... Differences in observed levels of milk production under different conditions may then reflect a complex interplay between factors limiting maternal performance (peripheral limitation and heat dissipation: generally better when it is cooler) and factors influencing maximum pup growth (litter size...

.... To distinguish between the two hypotheses,we examined milk energy output at peak lactation in MF1 laboratory mice exposed to 30°C ( N =12), 21°C ( N =10; published data)and 8°C ( N =10; published data). The peripheral limitation hypothesis predicts that milk energy output will remain constant at different...

... at 8°C and 21°C having significantly higher increases in RMR than mice at 30°C (29.6 kJ day –1 , 25.5 kJ day –1 and 8.1 kJ day –1 , respectively). The observed changes in visceral organs and RMR are consistent with both the heat dissipation and peripheral limit hypotheses. However, mice exposed to 8°C...
