"Current knowledge on the social organization and behavior of gorillas is dominated by results from research on mountain gorillas though there are some data for eastern and western lowland gorillas. The minimum group size for all subspecies is two individuals (usually a silverback and a female), except for males ranging alone, while maximum group size varies slightly for each subspecies (Yamagiwa et al. 2003). The maximum group size for mountain gorillas can exceed 20 individuals, while eastern and western lowland gorillas generally are not found in groups larger than 17 to 20 individuals and western lowland gorilla groups are always observed in groups smaller than 20 individuals (Yamagiwa et al. 2003)."

What is steady heat flow?

In most realistic situations heat flow can be said to occur from a region of higher temperature to one of lower temperature. As the region of higher temperature loses heat and the other region gains heat their temperatures become closer and the rate of heat flow diminishes. If, however, it can be contrived to maintain the source of heat at a constant temperature and the destination of the heat also at a constant temperature, then the heat will flow between the two at a constant rate, called steady heat flow.

What is the direction of the flow of heat?
