Limited mass-independent individual variation in resting metabolic rate in a wild population of snow voles (Chionomys nivalis)

Hagmayer, Andres; Camenisch, Glauco; Canale, Cindy; Postma, Erik; Bonnet, Timothée

Description

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is a potentially important axis of physiological adaptation to the thermal environment. However, our understanding of the causes and consequences of individual variation in RMR in the wild is hampered by a lack of data, as well as analytical challenges. RMR measurements in the wild are generally characterized by large measurement errors and a strong dependency on mass. The latter is problematic when assessing the ability of RMR to evolve independently of mass. Mixed...[Show more]
