Bergmann’s rule

is based on the principle that heat is retained at the body surface

states that a linear body with long arms and legs is optimal for cold climates

states that bodies with increased mass or volume to surface area are optimal for cold climates

is based upon the principle that as arms increase in length, there is a corresponding increase in surface area

concerns the relationship between climate and shape and size of appendages
