Oxygen uptake rates in B. alvarengai housed at different ambient temperatures

Temperature (°C)Oxygen uptake (ml kg-1 h-1)aQ10b
1784.5±10.2
22117.9±13.51.98±0.20
27167.3±29.4*2.10±0.56
  • Values are means ± s.e.m. (N=7).

    Mean body mass=2.47±0.39 g (mean ± s.e.m.; N=4).

  • a Oxygen uptake was significantly affected by temperature; bQ10 values are calculated between adjacent temperatures.
