Energetics of Life Style Endothermy + Ectothermy (most species) 2% 44% 38°C → convert more energy to their species and could make more offsprings → cold nights not active [endo. are active at night and can be active longer] Ectothermy (most species) “ no need to eat” Food switch as they grow (larval to adult stage), small size, rely on temperature for hunting (day hunters), sits and wait for food Resting Metabolism [Qcal/ g/hr] Birds Q= 36M^(0.27) Mammals Q= 19.8M^(0.27) Reptiles Q= 1.7M^(0.27) Birds and Mammals= can not be as small as 1g forms Reptiles= can be small as 1g forms [Serpentine, Ambush], get energy by glycogen Endothermy Advantages Long distance running (goes looking for food) Night hunting (maintain internal temperature) Cold climates *Hummingbird is the smallest an endothermy can get. Also becomes ectothermy at night; cannot maintain internal temperature* Insects (small) → supply oxygen through air tubes → Heterotherm- breathing by diffusion - tracheae Two different strategies obtaining fitness, one has what the other lacks.
