We evaluated the relationship between organ mass and the limits to aerobic metabolism in house sparrows Passer domesticus. The results were used to test three models of performance limitation (the central limitation, peripheral limitation and symmorphosis concepts). Basal metabolic rate (BMR) was determined during the rest phase. The maximum rate of oxygen consumption during exercise ( v_dot (O2max)) was measured in an enclosed wheel that allowed limited hovering flight. Neither BMR nor v_dot… CONTINUE READING
