Estimating energy expenditure of animals using the accelerometry technique: activity, inactivity and comparison with the heart-rate technique.


Several methods have been used to estimate the energy expenditure of free-ranging animals. A relatively new technique uses measures of dynamic body acceleration as a calibrated proxy for energy expenditure and has proved an excellent predictor of energy expenditure in active animals. However, some animals can spend much of their time inactive and still… (More)
