PM_WITH_NAOH
  • Label: P. murrayi with NaOH
  • Definition: Average metabolic heat rate per Plectus murrayi individual in the presence of NaOH at each experimental temperature. This was calculated by averaging the average metabolic heat rate per nematode for samples PM1_NaOH, PM3_NaOH, and PM5_NaOH at each experimental temperature.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: microWatts
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
PM_WOUT_NAOH
  • Label: P. murrayi without NaOH
  • Definition: Average metabolic heat rate per Plectus murrayi individual in the absence of NaOH at each experimental temperature. This was calculated by averaging the average metabolic heat rate per nematode for samples PM2_NaCl, PM4_NaCl, and PM6_H2O at each experimental temperature.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: microWatts
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
CO2_PROD_RATE
  • Label: Co2 production rate
  • Definition: The rate of CO2 production by the average Plectus murrayi individual at each of the experimental temperatures.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: picoMolesCO2perSecond
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
O2_CONS_RATE
  • Label: O2 consumption rate
  • Definition: The rate of O2 consumption by the average Plectus murrayi individual at each of the experimental temperatures.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: picoMolesO2perSecond
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
RESP_QUOTIENT
  • Label: Respiratory quotient
  • Definition: The rate of CO2 production divided by the rate of O2 consumption yields the respiratory quotient.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: dimensionless
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
