Basal metabolism

Basal metabolism

(Science: biochemistry, biology) heat production, or its measurement, of an organism at the lowest level of cell chemistry in an inactive, awake, fasting state.

It may be determined directly by means of a calorimeter or indirectly by calculating the heat production from an analysis of the end products of oxidation within the organism or from the amount of oxygen utilised.
