Oxygen consumption (VO2), heart rate, body temperature, and stride frequency were measured in Marabou storks walking on a treadmill at a range of speeds and gradients. VO2 was linearly related to speed at gradients up to 11 degrees and speeds up to 1.4 m . s-1, and the slope of the VO2/speed regression increased with the treadmill angle up to 9 degrees. At 11 degrees there was a fall in the slope. Analysis indicates the cost of horizontal movement of about 1.1 ml O2 . m-1 (mean wt 4.5 kg). The… CONTINUE READING
