Heart rate and energy expenditure of incubating wandering albatrosses: basallevels, natural variation, and the effects of human disturbance

Wandering Albatross (Diomedea exulans) Science Article 13

abstract

We studied the changes in heart rate (HR) associated with metabolic rate of incubating and resting adult wandering albatrosses (Diomedea exulans) on the Crozet Islands. Metabolic rates of resting albatrosses fitted with external HR recorders were measured in a metabolicchamber to calibrate the relationship between HR and oxygen consumption
