Among terrestrial mammals, the morphology of the gastrointestinal tract reflects the metabolic demands of the animal and individual requirements for processing, distributing, and absorbing nutrients. To determine if gastrointestinal tract morphology is similarly correlated with metabolic requirements in marine mammals, we examined the Ž . relationship between basal metabolic rate BMR and small intestinal length in pinnipeds and cetaceans. Oxygen consumption was measured for resting bottlenose… CONTINUE READING
