    ..Minute volume at 10 degrees C increased more by changes in ventilation frequency (up to 45.5+/-4.85 breaths min(-1)) than tidal volume (9.4+/-1.03 ml, BTPS), as is also typical for a small-medium sized marsupial...

    ..The relative water economy (EWL/MWP) of the dunnarts was unfavourable, remaining >1 at all T(a) investigated, and did not improve with torpor. Thus torpor in stripe-faced dunnarts results in absolute, but not relative, water savings...
