... frequency and metabolic rate, and the activity of metabolic enzymes tended to decrease. After taking into account temporal changes, body mass, flight wingbeat frequency and metabolic rate were repeatable. Finally, we found significant family resemblance for all traits measured, indicating that shared genes...

... maltose (from starch), used as a comparator. Three new findings extend our understanding of physiological processing of plant glucosides: (1) the capacity of passerine birds to hydrolyze plant glucosides seems relatively low, compared with rodents; (2) in this first test of vertebrates' enzymic capacity...

..., at which time, to look for potential trade-offs in energy allocation, we measured total lipid mass, skeletal muscle and organ mass, indices of blood oxygen-carrying capacity and the activities of key metabolic enzymes in various tissues. Surprisingly, there was a minimal response of most characters...
