Quantification of metabolic rates (MR) is fundamental to understanding an individual organism's physiology and life history, as well as overall population dynamics. Applications of MR measurements have increased both in quantity and quality across animal ecology over the past 50 years. Included in this trend, research on MRs of marine turtles and its consequences for these unique ectothermic vertebrates has matured significantly. We reviewed existing literature on marine turtle MRs in the… CONTINUE READING
