SUMMARY We compiled published values of mammalian maximum oxygen consumption during exercise () and supplemented these data with new measurements of for the largest rodent (capybara), 20 species of smaller-bodied rodents, two species of weasels and one small marsupial. Many of the new data were obtained with running-wheel respirometers instead of the treadmill systems used in most previous measurements of mammalian . We used both conventional and phylogenetically informed allometric regression… Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of maximal oxygen consumption during exercise (V̇O2,max) and ecological correlates among lizard species
TLDR
Among species of lizards, helodermatids, varanids and skinks (which are mainly active foragers) have relatively high maximal aerobic capacity during forced exercise, whereas viviparous species have relatively low V̇O2,max. Expand
Relationship between Maximal Oxygen Consumption () and Home Range Area in Mammals
TLDR
Residuals from log-log (allometric) regressions on body mass with two different regression models indicate that phylogenetic signal is present in both size-adjusted traits, consistent with findings of previous studies. Expand
Aerobic power and flight capacity in birds: a phylogenetic test of the heart-size hypothesis
TLDR
Routine flight modes seem to have shaped the energetic requirements of birds sufficiently to be anatomically detected at the comparative level, with results indicating that species exhibiting continuous hovering flight have substantially larger hearts than other groups, species that use flapping flight and gliding show intermediate values, and that species categorized as poor flyers show the smallest values.

Ecological and phylogenetic variability in the spinalis muscle of snakes
TLDR
Results suggest that muscle morphology may have played a key role in the adaptive radiation of snakes and Habitat effects dominated models for analyses of all species and advanced snakes only, with the spinalis length spanning more vertebrae in arboreal species and fewer vertebraes in aquatic and burrowing species.

Allometric relations of respiratory variables in Amniota: Effects of phylogeny, form, and function.
Biological variables are frequently described by analyzing scaling relationships of the variable against body mass (MB). Respiratory variables are no exception and allometric relations for oxygenExpand
Locomotion, Energetics, Performance, and Behavior: A Mammalian Perspective on Lizards, and Vice Versa.
TLDR
Comparisons support the idea that the (gradual) evolution of mammalian endothermy did not necessarily require major changes in locomotor energetics, performance, or associated behaviors, and speculate that the evolution of thermoregulatory responses to low temperatures may have been a key and "difficult" step in this transition.

TLDR
Larger placental mammals (but not marsupials or birds) show evidence of greater challenges with heat dissipation, but there is little evidence for compensatory adaptations to enhance heat loss in larger endotherms, suggesting that metabolic rate (MR) more generally balances heat loss for thermoregulation in endotherm. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of standard metabolic rate of snakes: a new proposal for the understanding of interspecific variation in feeding behavior
TLDR
It is suggested that foraging mode has a major effect over the evolution of SMR in snakes, which could represent an ecophysiological co-adaptation, since ambush hunters (with low feeding rates) present a lower maintenance energetic cost (SMR) when compared to active foragers. Expand
Metabolic scaling in animals: methods, empirical results, and theoretical explanations.
TLDR
The methods of scaling analysis are reviewed, using examples for a range of traits with an emphasis on those related to metabolism in animals, and mechanistic explanations for metabolic rate that may explain the size- and temperature-dependence of this trait are proposed. Expand
A broad-scale comparison of aerobic activity levels in vertebrates: endotherms versus ectotherms
TLDR
Together, the results quantify similarities and differences in the potential for aerobic activity among ectotherms and endotherms from diverse environments and provide insights into the models and mechanisms that may underlie the body mass-dependence of oxygen consumption. Expand

Allometric scaling of maximum metabolic rate: the influence of temperature
TLDR
It is concluded that prolonged cold exposure increases exercise-induced by acting as a form of aerobic training in mammals, and that elevated muscle temperatures of large species do not explain the scaling of across taxa. Expand
Design of the mammalian respiratory system. III Scaling maximum aerobic capacity to body mass: wild and domestic mammals.
TLDR
Both the variability in Vo2max with body size and among animals of the same size provide powerful tools for investigating the relationship between structure and function at each step in the respiratory system, from the oxygen in environmental air to the oxygen sink in the mitochondria. Expand
Allometric scaling of maximal metabolic rate in mammals: muscle aerobic capacity as determinant factor
TLDR
Integrated structure-function studies on a subset of 11 species show that the variation of Vo2 max with body size is tightly associated with the aerobic capacity of the locomotor musculature, and Vo2max is linearly related to both total mitochondrial and capillary erythrocyte volumes. Expand
Basal Metabolic Rate in Carnivores Is Associated with Diet after Controlling for Phylogeny
TLDR
The “muscle performance hypothesis” is proposed, which suggests that selection for different muscle fiber types can account for the differences in BMR observed between meat eaters and vegetarian species within the Carnivora. Expand
CLIMATIC ADAPTATION AND THE EVOLUTION OF BASAL AND MAXIMUM RATES OF METABOLISM IN RODENTS
TLDR
The hypothesis that variation in environmental factors leads to variation in the selective regime for metabolic rates of rodents is supported, and the causes of a positive association between BMR and latitude remain obscure. Expand
Phylogenetically Informed Analysis of the Allometry of Mammalian Basal Metabolic Rate Supports Neither Geometric Nor Quarter-Power Scaling
TLDR
No single value of b adequately characterizes the allometric relationship between body mass and BMR, and the effects of data selection and phylogenetic method on estimation of the scaling exponent relating mammalian BMR to M are investigated. Expand
Relationships among running performance, aerobic physiology and organ mass in male Mongolian gerbils
TLDR
The results are consistent with many other studies that found weak correlations between organismal performance and putatively relevant subordinate traits, thus supporting the idea that some components within a functional system may exhibit excess capacity at various points in the evolutionary history of a population, while others constitute limiting factors. Expand
Exercise-induced maximal metabolic rate scales with muscle aerobic capacity
TLDR
The allometric variation of maximal metabolic rate is directly related to the scaling of the total effective surfaces of mitochondria and capillaries, thus confirming the basic conjecture of the second fractal models but refuting the arguments for 3/4 power scaling. Expand

TLDR
A genetic analysis based on measurements of the basal and the maximum swim‐ and cold‐induced oxygen consumption in about 1000 bank voles from six generations of a laboratory colony is presented, consistent with the aerobic capacity model of the evolution of endothermy in birds and mammals. Expand

TLDR
The analyses using a data set that included only BMR with n ≥ 3 were consistent with the conclusion that BMR does not differ between passerine and nonpasserine birds after taking phylogeny into account. Expand
