Data Value

Enter the metabolic rate data value.

Units
Choose from one of:
• cm3.02.hr−1
• cm3.02.g−1.hr−1
• mL.02.hr−1
• mL.02.g−1.hr−1
• mm3.02.hr−1
• mm3.02.g−1.hr−1

Rate Definition
Choose one of:
• Unspecified — details of measurement method not given.
• Field/Active — measured from individuals enagaged in normal activity. This is usually measured using doubly labelled water.
• Basal — rate measured from individuals that are: experiencing neither heat nor cold stress (i.e. are in their thermoneutral zone); are resting and calm; and are post–absorbative (are not digesting or absorbing a meal).
• Resting — rate measured from individuals that are resting (similar to Basal but less stringent conditions).


Adult Body Mass
Record the body mass (in grams) of the individual(s) that the metabolic rate data came from. Note that this body size measure should also be entered into the body size variable
field but serves here as a double check of the data.

Adult Body Temperature
Record the body temperature (in degrees C) of the individual(s) that the metabolic rate data came from.

Generic value types: Data Range, Measure, Sample Size, Captivity Status, Sex and Source Type.
