Basal metabolic rate and thermal conductance in Arctic Tern chicks and the effect of heat increment of feeding on thermoregulatory expenses
Author(s): Klaassen M., Bech C. & Slagsvold G
Abstract: Chick basal metabolic rate (BMRc) as oxygen consumption (VO2 in ml O2 g-1 h-1) of unfed individuals of Arctic Terns Sterna paradisaea during development (12-109 g) was best described by the parabolic equation VO2 = 1.25 + 0.061 m-0.00047m2, where m i..[more]..
