Apart from humans, some marine or semiaquatic mammals exhibit both a relatively large brain and large adipose depots, such as whales and dolphins, seals, sea lions, and beavers. In aquatic locomotion, costs of transport do not increase with body mass if the body retains a geometrically similar, streamlined shape [5]. We hypothesized that costs of bipedal locomotion may increase less steeply with additional body mass than costs of quadrupedal locomotion [59], but this remains to be tested. Developmental Aspects In the evolutionary history of human adipose depots, developmental aspects should also be considered.
