A baby dolphin is born into the ocean, which is a fairly cold environment. Water has a high heat conductivity, so thethermal regulation of a newborn dolphin is quite important. It has been known for a long time that baby dolphins'blubber is different in composition and quantity from the blubber of adults. Does this make the babies betterprotected from the cold compared to adults? One measure of the effectiveness of blubber is its "conductance". Thisvalue as calculated on 1 newborn dolphins and 10 adults dolphins (Dunkin et al. 2005).The newborn dolphins had an average conductance of 10.44, with a standard error of the mean equal to 0.8.
