Despite the importance of metabolic rate in determining flight time of tsetse and in mediating the influence of abiotic variables on life history parameters (and hence abundance and distribution), metabolic rate measurements and their repeatability have not been widely assessed in these flies. We investigate age-related changes in standard metabolic rate (SMR) and its repeatability, using flow-through respirometry, for a variety of feeding, gender and pregnancy classes during early adult… CONTINUE READING
