Beyond the ‘3/4‐power law’: variation in the intra‐and interspecific scaling of metabolic rate in animals

  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical…
  • 26 August 2005
In this review I show that the ‘3/4‐power scaling law’ of metabolic rate is not universal, either within or among animal species. Significant variation in the scaling of metabolic rate with body massExpand

The intraspecific scaling of metabolic rate with body mass in fishes depends on lifestyle and temperature.
Metabolic energy fuels all biological processes, and therefore theories that explain the scaling of metabolic rate with body mass potentially have great predictive power in ecology. A new model, thatExpand

Effects of Food, Genotype, and Maternal Size and Age on Offspring Investment in Daphnia Magna
This laboratory study of Daphnia magna had two major aims: (1) to examine the effect of food quantity on offspring size and number and how this effect varies with genotype and maternal size, age, andExpand

The 3/4-Power Law Is Not Universal: Evolution of Isometric, Ontogenetic Metabolic Scaling in Pelagic Animals
Abstract It is commonly assumed that metabolic rate scales with body mass to the 3/4 power. However, during ontogeny, the metabolic rate of pelagic (open-water) animals often scales isometrically (inExpand

The fauna of North American temperate cold springs: patterns and hypotheses
SUMMARY. 1. The relative abundance of six classes of macroinvertebrates in fifteen mid-Appalachian and thirteen other North American cold springs is briefly reviewed. In both surveys peracaridans,Expand

Is metabolic rate a universal ‘pacemaker’ for biological processes?
  • D. Glazier
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical…
  • 1 May 2015
A common, long‐held belief is that metabolic rate drives the rates of various biological, ecological and evolutionary processes. Although this metabolic pacemaker view (as assumed by the recent,Expand

Effects of metabolic level on the body size scaling of metabolic rate in birds and mammals

  • 22 June 2008
Metabolic rate is traditionally assumed to scale with body mass to the 3/4-power, but significant deviations from the ‘3/4-power law’ have been observed for several different taxa of animals andExpand

  • 1 October 2014
In this review I show that four major kinds of theoretical approaches have been used to explain the scaling of metabolic rate in cells, organisms and groups of organisms in relation to system size. Expand

Separating the respiration rates of embryos and brooding females of Daphnia magna: Implications for the cost of brooding and the allometry of metabolic rate
Rates of oxygen consumption were measured in eggs, embryos, and neonates, as well as in adults of Daphnia magna with or without their broods. There was no detectable energetic cost of carrying aExpand

Ecological Influences and Morphological Correlates of Resting and Maximal Metabolic Rates across Teleost Fish Species
Rates of aerobic metabolism vary considerably across evolutionary lineages, but little is known about the proximate and ultimate factors that generate and maintain this variability. Using data forExpand
