BMR, basal metabolic rate; V̇_{O2max}, maximal oxygen consumption in exercise; V̇_{O2sum}, maximal oxygen consumption in thermogenesis.
Regressions were performed across all ages. Regression coefficients (r) and P values for fat and lean tissue content were computed from absolute tissue mass and as fractions of whole body mass; in the latter case, regressions also included whole body mass (r and P values not shown). P values significant after Bonferroni correction are indicated with an asterisk (adjusted α=0.0038 for all ages combined).
