  • Winter north of the Arctic circle in northern Norway is colder, windier and there is less solar radiation than in eastern Scotland, at a latitude 13 degrees further south. We predicted from equations derived from heated taxidermic mounts that the maintenance metabolism (Basal Metabolic Rate plus extra costs for thermoregulation) for Purple Sandpipers Calidris maritima wintering in these climatic conditions in Norway would be 1.3 times greater than for Purple Sandpipers of the same size in… CONTINUE READING
