Re: NEED BIRD RESPIRATION REF
I don't currently have this and haven't looked at it in a while, but you
might try Krogh,A. 1968. "The Comparative Physiology of Respiratory
Mechanisms." I can reply latter with a more thorough list.
I think some previous miscommunication about costs of locomotion may have
arisen from the fact that cost of transport (COT) in J/kg/m plotted against
body mass on logarithmic coordinates is linear. COT vs velocity in m/s is
See also, Langman, V A. J of Experimental Biology 198, 629-632 (1995),
"Moving Cheaply: Energetics of Walking in the African Elephant." for
references on elephant locomotion.
