Data from: Basal metabolism in tropical birds: latitude, altitude, and the “pace of life”

Gustavo A. Londoño, Mark A. Chappell, María Del Rosario Castañeda, Jill E. Jankowski & Scott K. Robinson
1. Life history varies across latitudes, with the ‘pace of life’ being ‘slower’ in tropical regions. Because life history is coupled to energy metabolism via allocation tradeoffs and links between performance capacity and energy use, low metabolic intensity is expected in tropical animals. Low metabolism has been reported for lowland tropical birds, but it is unclear if this is due to ‘slow’ life history or to a warm, stable environment. 2. We measured Basal Metabolic...
