Birds with a small body size have a high surface area to volume ratio, and this means that they have a high rate of heat loss to the environment. Birds may employ behavioural strategies in order to counter this heat loss. The adjustment of feeding...

The thermoregulatory capacity and metabolic responses to light-dark cycles under various mild food-deprivation treatments were measured in Bronze Mannikins Spermestes cucullatus (10-11 g). We measured the response of minimum oxygen consumption to...

Photorespiration by C. reinhardtii and A. nidulans was measured as the O2 inhibition of CO2 uptake and the CO2 compensation points. Net photosynthesis was O2-dependent in Chlamydomonas grown in 5% CO2, but O2 insensitive in cultures bubbled with a...
