Discuss Concepts What heat transfer processes might account for the change in body temperature when a mammal’s body temperature undergoes daily variations?

Summary Introduction

To review:

The heat transfer processes that might account for the change in body temperature in mammals.

Introduction:

An animal may lose or gain heat from its body by the processes of conduction, convection, radiation, and evaporation. These properties of heat regulation are very well depicted by the endotherms that with the help of various mechanisms acquire or lose heat.

Explanation

During thermoregulation, animals exchange heat with the environment to maintain their body temperature. This heat exchange can occur through processes like conduction, convection, radiation, and evaporation.

Conduction is the process by which animals exchange heat with another object through direct contact...
