Oxidative fuel metabolism of ruff sandpipers (Philomachus pugnax) during cold exposure and exercise

Eric Vaillancourt
Indirect calorimetry and nitrogen excretion measurements allow quantifying dynamic changes in the rates of carbohydrate, lipid and protein oxidation over time. Although measuring oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production is relatively simple, only a few studies presented these two measurements in avian models, but none used the data to calculate rates of metabolic fuel oxidation. Therefore, the first goal of this study was to use indirect calorimetry and nitrogen excretion measurements to quantify the rates...
