Disentangling environmental drivers of metabolic flexibility in birds : the importance of temperature extremes versus temperature variability [Ecography]

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

Examining physiological traits across large spatial scales can shed light on the environmental factors driving physiological variation. For endotherms, flexibility in aerobic metabolism is especially important for coping with thermally challenging environments and recent research has shown that aerobic metabolic scope [the difference between maximum thermogenic capacity (Msum) and basal metabolic rate (BMR)] increases with latitude in mammals.(...)
