The metabolic rate of organisms may be viewed as a basic property from which other vital rates and many ecological patterns emerge and that follows a universal allometric mass scaling law, or it may be considered a property of the organism that emerges as a result of the adaptation to the environment, with consequently fewer universal mass scaling properties. Here, we examine the mass scaling of respiration and maximum feeding (clearance and ingestion rates) and growth rates of heterotrophic…

TLDR
It is shown that ontogenetic (within-individual) b can be strongly and positively related to growth rates of juvenile fish when food availability is naturally restricted, and that b within fish orders is linked to natural mortality rates of fish larvae.
The natural selection of metabolism and mass selects allometric transitions from prokaryotes to mammals
TLDR
It is shown that mass specific metabolism can be selected as the pace of the resource handling that generates net energy for self-replication and the selection of mass, and that this selection of metabolism and mass is sufficient to explain metabolic exponents that decline from 5/6 over zero to −1/6 in 3D, and from 3/4 over zero in 2D.
The natural selection of metabolism explains curvature in allometric scaling

TLDR
The natural selection of metabolism and mass was fitted to explain the maximum observed body masses over time, as well as the current inter-specific allometry for metabolism, and the estimated selection of mass specific metabolism was found to bend the metabolic allometry over time.
Traits controlling body size in copepods: separating general constraints from species-specific strategies
TLDR
Across all these scales, the ratio of relative growth and development rates g0/u0 is a better predictor of adult size than g0 or u0 alone, consistent with a simple model of individual growth.
Characteristic Sizes of Life in the Oceans, from Bacteria to Whales.
TLDR
This work collate and review data on size-based scaling laws for resource acquisition, mobility, sensory range, and progeny size for all pelagic marine life, from bacteria to whales, and divides life in the ocean into seven major realms based on trophic strategy, physiology, and life history strategy.
The Natural Selection of Metabolism Explains Curvature in Fossil Body Mass Evolution
TLDR
The results integrate the inter-specific allometries of existing species with a deeper understanding of their natural selection during evolutionary diversification over millions of years.
Approaches for testing hypotheses for the hypometric scaling of aerobic metabolic rate in animals.

  • 2018
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.
Deriving Population Scaling Rules from Individual-Level Metabolism and Life History Traits
Individual metabolism generally scales with body mass with an exponent around 3/4. From dimensional arguments it follows that maximum population growth rate (rmax) scales with a −1/4 exponent.
Metabolic Scaling in Complex Living Systems
TLDR
This heuristic attempt at building a unifying theory of metabolic scaling will not only stimulate further testing of all of the various subtheories composing it, but also foster an appreciation that many current models are, at least in part, complementary or even synergistic, rather than antagonistic.

In order to study the size dependency of grazing and growth rates in zooplankton, data wcrc collected from laboratory studies in the literature, covering both limnic and marinc organisms. Data were
Toward a metabolic theory of ecology
TLDR
This work has developed a quantitative theory for how metabolic rate varies with body size and temperature, and predicts how metabolic theory predicts how this rate controls ecological processes at all levels of organization from individuals to the biosphere.

We compiled a global data set of copepod in situ weight‐specific fecundity and growth rates, together with measurements of their body weights, and the chlorophyll a and temperature of the natural
Zooplankton grazing and growth: Scaling within the 2‐2,‐μm body size range
TLDR
The size dependency of grazing and growth rates in zooplankton, data collected from laboratory studies in the literature, covering both limnic and marinc organisms, found significant differences between groups, but the entire set of observations could not be fitted by an overall regression.
The 3/4-Power Law Is Not Universal: Evolution of Isometric, Ontogenetic Metabolic Scaling in Pelagic Animals
TLDR
The observation of isometric scaling and other kinds of metabolic scaling both within and among species suggests that metabolic scaling is not simply the result of physical constraints, but is an evolutionarily malleable trait that responds to ecological circumstances.
Respiration rates in heterotrophic, free-living protozoa
TLDR
It is conceivable that protozoan species exist with lower maximum potential growth and metabolic rates than those predicted from cell volume and the equations derived from the available data, but the lack of information concerning the state of the cells studied prevents verification.
Mean mass-specific metabolic rates are strikingly similar across life's major domains: Evidence for life's metabolic optimum
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, despite the enormous biochemical, physiological, and ecological differences between the surveyed species that vary over 1020-fold in body mass, mean metabolic rates of major taxonomic groups displayed at physiological rest converge on a narrow range from 0.3 to 9 W kg−1.
The origin of allometric scaling laws in biology from genomes to ecosystems: towards a quantitative unifying theory of biological structure and organization
TLDR
A set of principles based on the observation that almost all life is sustained by hierarchical branching networks, which are assumed to have invariant terminal units, are space-filling and are optimised by the process of natural selection are proposed.
Shifts in metabolic scaling, production, and efficiency across major evolutionary transitions of life
TLDR
The scalings of metabolic rate, population growth rate, and production efficiency with body size have changed across the evolutionary transitions, showing Kleiber’s 3/4 power scaling law does not apply universally across organisms.
