KLEIBER1,2 first reported in 1932 the concept that a linear relation exists between the logarithms of metabolic rate and, body-weight. The basal rate of oxygen consumption per gram of body-weight was found to be proportional to an exponential function of the body-weight (oxygen consumption × weight−3/4 = constant)3. More recent observations have suggested… CONTINUE READING
