Seasonal daily, daytime and night-time field metabolic rates in Arabian babblers (Turdoides squamiceps).

Abstract

Arabian babblers (Turdoides squamiceps; mean adult body mass=72.5 g) inhabit extreme deserts of Israel. Previous studies have shown that their daily field metabolic rates are similar in winter and summer and that there is an increase during the breeding season. We hypothesized that the difference in seasonal daily field metabolic rate would be a consequence… (More)
