Abstract
The effects of heat stress and water deprivation on the water balance and related environmental physiology of several species of East African antelope normally inhabiting moist bushland and savannah terrains have been described earlier (Schoen, 1971), Also known are the responses of the large, dry country antelope, the eland, to heat stress and water deprivation (Taylor and Lyman, 1967), The present study examines the effects of heat stress and of water deprivation on the water balance and related environmental responses of a pigmy antelope, the dikdik, normally inhabiting the most arid regions of East Africa.
