Much of the current research on RE is concerned with the vertical component of the GRF, and has stemmed from the hypothesis that the muscle forces required of an animal during the stance phase of running are key determinants of the metabolic cost
of running (12).
6 kg of limb mass from the ankles to the hip, for example, reduces the metabolic cost
of slow running by 15%.
Limiting the amount of tissue with high metabolic cost
(especially muscle), and storing extra energy as body fat, seems to be the strategy of choice for surviving feast-famine cycles.
and mortality risk) associated with the three main feeding behaviors in zooplankton and to construct trait-based models to predict zooplankton trait distributions in the ocean.
Although seemingly counterintuitive, the loss of eyes is thought to be an "adaptive" or beneficial trait, as the maintenance of a complex but now useless organ would come at a high metabolic cost
2] during exercise shows the metabolic cost
and depends on relative work rate and type of muscle action .
Although several studies have measured energy expenditure (EE) during exercise testing in this population, there is limited research regarding the metabolic cost
of activities of daily living (ADL).
Biomechanical testing will measure changes in energy expended by users, assessing how quickly individuals acclimate to the system and whether there is a reduction in metabolic cost
So, smaller females may live and breed longer because their metabolic cost
is less," he added.
As an example, consider the metabolic cost
of carrying a Wildlife Computers PAT to each of these sizes (1.
The wild plant may already have enough defenses against pests, for example, or the gene may exact a metabolic cost
It also helps you activate more muscle, so you raise the metabolic cost
of every exercise even greater.
