REVIEWS 1947 RATE University of California, Davis OCTOBER, SIZE AND MAX Husbandry, College No. 4 METABOLIC KLEIBER of Agriculture, CORRELATIONBETWEEN BODY SIZE AND METABOLIC RATE. Gunther (1944) introduces a recent review on body weight and metabolic rate with a motto which starts as follows : âIt is believed that far greater progresswill be made by discarding all thoughts of a uniformity in heat loss and emphasizing the non-uniformity in heat production. . . .â The sentence is a citation from Benedictâs book, VW Energetics (1938, p. 194). It is rather difficult to understand how forgetting all thoughts of uniformity and emphasizing non-uniformity can stimulate a comparison of metabolic rates of large and small animals. Any comparison presupposesa common basis, and if I were convinced of the âfutility of attempts to discover a unifying principle in metabolismâ (Benedict, l.c., p. 178) I should not attempt to write a review on the relation of body size and metabolic rate. The reader can be expected to spend time on this review only when he can be convinced that body size and metabolic rate are actually related. That these two variables are related is in fact common knowledge. Does a horse produce
