Mean water loss and related measures for 17 experimental animals

Mean ± s.e.m.
Standardized loss flux (ng h-1 cm-2 Pa-17.40±1.17 
Permeability (cm s-1×1042.89±0.457 
Mass-specific loss in dry air (% h-1 aw-10.330±0.052 
Mean flux in 84% RH (μg h-10.221±0.036 
Mean ± s.e.m.
Standardized loss flux (ng h-1 cm-2 Pa-17.40±1.17 
Permeability (cm s-1×1042.89±0.457 
Mass-specific loss in dry air (% h-1 aw-10.330±0.052

For the standardized loss flux, the surface area was estimated as 12Mb0.67(Edney, 1977). The mean animal mass (Mb) was 0.45 mg.
