...) of the right femur, tibiotarsus and tarsometatarsus was measured from the birds used in the respirometry experiments using digital vernier calipers (accuracy, ±0.01 mm). Geometric similarity in linear dimensions between the two size groups was investigated by determining whether their axial and appendicular...

...Erica C. Heinrich; Manoush Farzin; C. Jaco Klok; Jon F. Harrison SUMMARY Animals reared in hypoxic environments frequently exhibit smaller body sizes than when reared under normal atmospheric oxygen concentrations. The mechanisms responsible for this widely documented pattern of body size...

... of the muscles that power feeding. However, functional insight into scaling relationships is fundamental to our understanding of the ecology, performance and evolution of animals. In this study, in vitro contractile properties of three feeding muscles were determined for a series of different sizes of African...

.... However, little is known about relationships between egg-mass structure and the opportunities and constraints imposed on structure by metabolic gas transport. We examined the effects of four factors (temperature, embryo age, embryo density and egg-mass size) on the metabolism of egg masses using both...

... of the flightless ratites in which the neopulmo is relatively poorly developed and a segmentum accelerans may be generally lacking. The large size of the bronchial system of the ostrich may help explain the unique shifts in the airflow pathways that must occur from resting to panting breathing, explaining its...
