Energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes
In this review, we summarize the energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes. There were marked differences in the magnitude of aerobic metabolism during prey handling and ...
Metabolic rates and thermoregulatory characteristics of Akodon azarae (Rodentia: Sigmodontinae)
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2000)
Resting metabolic rates of two orbweb spiders: A first approach to evolutionary success of ecribellate spiders
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011)
Spiders are considered conservative with regard to their resting metabolic rate, presenting the same allometric relation with body mass as the majority of land-arthropods. Nevertheless, web-building is thought to have a ...
Basal rate of metabolism and temperature regulation of two desert herbivorous octodontid rodents: Octomys mimax and Tympanoctomys barrerae
We studied the energetics of two herbivorous desert rodents from South America. The two species had slightly lower basal metabolic rates, lower thermal conductances, and higher temperature differentials than those expected ...
Effect of fipronil on energy metabolism in the perfused rat liver
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-07-02)
Fipronil is an insecticide used to control pests in animals and plants that can causes hepatotoxicity in animals and humans, and it is hepatically metabolized to fipronil sulfone by cytochrome P-450. The present study aimed ...
