Effect of temperature on Metabolism

This isn't exactly my area, but if I got it right, high termal inertia is often inversely proportional to the metabolic rate (of a warm blooded animal). Graphs that display that metabolic rates rise when temperature rises is a bit another thing. Thermal ...

Effect of temperature on Metabolism

... and the effect of temperature on metabolic rates. Everything I read tells me that larger organisms, for example the Ostrich, has high thermal inertia and metabolic rates about 15 times LOWER than smaller organisms - the hummingbird for example. But I also come across graphs which show an increasing ...

Please help!

... as I understand, during normal rotational movement endolymph in semicircular canals moves in the opposite direction of the body's rotation due to inertia, that causes cilia in crista ampullaris to bend in one ear and the other into the opposite directions. This causes in one ear hyperpolarization ...

... speed and still keeps activity under the high temperature produced by this high speed movement? What's kind of structure of body that endures the inertia and impact caused by this high speed? What's kind of nervous system that controls its body to move flexibly in this high speed? Think about ...
