Fig. 1. Mean metabolic rates (VO2 mL g–1 h–1) for Chalinolobus gouldii (n = 58), for RMR (before the vertical dashed line) and PMR at measured time periods (after the vertical dashed line). Data are grouped across all individuals within each treatment: sham-fed bats, bats fed a 10% or a 20% meal size. Meals were provided at time ‘0’ as indicated by the vertical dashed line. For each boxplot, the box indicates the range between the first and third quartiles of the data, the whiskers extend up to 1.5 times the interquartile range, and outliers occur as points beyond those limits.
