A new model of avian embryonic metabolism is proposed that more accurately describes the available data. The model assumes that embryonic metabolism can be described by the equation VO2 = A X massB + C X growth rate. Empirically determined values of A, B, and C were used to predict the values of these parameters for the species whose preinternal pipping rate of O2 consumption (PIP) and total energy used during incubation (TOT) have been measured. Different patterns of growth were assumed for… CONTINUE READING
