Design, calibration and calculation for flow-through respirometry systems
TLDR
A procedure for precise calibration of CO2 and H2O analysers in a flow-through respirometry system by reference to a calibrated O2 analyser, using a small gas flame is described. Expand
Metabolic depression in animals: physiological perspectives and biochemical generalizations
TLDR
The resting and depressed metabolic rate of animals as a function of their body mass is examined, and anhydrobiosis is the ultimate strategy for eggs or other stages of the life cycle to survive extended periods of environmental stress. Expand

TLDR
The resting and depressed metabolic rate of animals as a function of their body mass, corrected to a common temperature is examined and an allometric approach allows ready comparison of the absolute level of both resting and depression metabolic rate for various animals, and suggests three general patterns of metabolic depression.

Temperature regulation and metabolism of an Australian bat, Chalinolobus gouldii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) when euthermic and torpid
TLDR
An Australian vespertilionid bat, Chalinolobus gouldii, exhibits a clear pattern of euthermic thermoregulation, typical of endotherms with respect to body temperature and rate of oxygen consumption, and use of torpor leads to significant energy savings. Expand
Re-evaluation of the allometry of wet thermal conductance for birds.
TLDR
Re-analyses of minimum thermal conductance data from Drent and Stonehouse and Aschoff's data, as well as more recent compilations, indicate that the most appropriate regressions for predicting C(wet) (ml O2 g(-1) h (-1) degrees C(-1)) of birds from body mass are the pooled regression for non-passerine and passerine birds, in the active (alpha) and resting (rho) phases. Expand
Environmental Correlates of Physiological Variables in Marsupials
TLDR
Residuals were consistently related to distribution aridity and rainfall variability, with species from arid and variable rainfall habitats having a low BMR, presumably to conserve energy in a low‐productivity environment and facilitating maintenance of water balance during dry periods. Expand
Reappraisal of the comparative cost of human locomotion using gait-specific allometric analyses
TLDR
The net costs of running and walking in humans are moderately different from those predicted from allometry and are not remarkable for an animal of its size. Expand
