Metabolic Rate of Caterpillars
Body size and metabolic rate of Manduca Sexta caterpillars
A dataset with 305 observations on the following 7 variables.
||ID number of the computer used to measure metabolic rate|
||Size of the caterpillar (in grams)|
||Log (base 10) of BodySize|
||Number from 1 (smallest) to 5 (largest) indicating stage of the caterpillar's life|
||Carbon dioxide concentration (in ppm)|
||Log (base 10) of metablic rate|
Marisa Stearns collected and analyzed body size and metabolic rates for Manduca Sexta caterpillars.
