Gnaiger 1983 POS-EnergEquivalents
|Gnaiger E (1983) Calculation of energetic and biochemical equivalents of respiratory oxygen consumption. In: Polarographic Oxygen Sensors. Aquatic and Physiological Applications. Gnaiger E, Forstner H (eds), Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, New York:337-45.|
The evaluation of metabolic energy loss is the major aim of respiratory studies in ecological energetics and for the construction of energy budgets. The polarographic oxygen sensor is becoming the prominent tool for indirect calorimetry in laboratory as well as in field investigations (Parts II and III). In this context a comprehensive outline of the calculation procedures for conversion of oxygen consumption data to energy equivalents is warranted. A more rigorous treatment of the subject will be presented elsewhere .
