Downloaded 23 times
Description Ejaculate quality traits, body mass, combined testis mass and basal metabolic rate for all species examined, collected from the literature (see References file). D=sperm quality traits were measured in samples from dissected specimens rather than ejaculates; (D)=only some of the traits were measured in dissected specimens; *=Combined testis mass was calculated from testicular dimensions or testis volume following: CTM = 1.166 * L * W * W, where L and W are the mean length and width, respectively, of the two testes; **=BMR was converted either from kcal/d (assuming 1L O2 = 4.839 kcal) or from kJ/d (assuming 1L O2 = 20.083 kJ)
