An exciting ratioThe 0.75 scaling exponent for colony metabolic rate suggests Mr. Waters is so important because it shows that colony metabolism affected in a manner similar to most individual organisms experience. As creatures go from small to large, their mass – specific metabolic rate drops, it is a broad pattern in the biology, ‘he said. ‘If you graph these patterns, you metabolism metabolism as a creature is decreased bigger, and the exponent is usually in the vicinity of 0,’.

The researchers found ants, whichetabolic rate of seed harvester ant colonies, not by adding and dividing the by-products of the metabolism of all individual colony members can be predicted. In fact, the colony as a whole produced only 75 percent of the by-products that its individual members would produce individually if each ant lived alone. So metabolism was less than the sum of all individual ants of colonies metabolism..El-Khatib UAS, Russell SJ, Nathan DM, O Closed-Loop Artificial pancreatic Bihormonal for type 1 diabetes.
