The respirometry course – held at the University of Florida, Gainesville, FL – teaches participants how to measure metabolic rates using indirect calorimetry. We will apply techniques for measuring O2 consumption, CO2 production and water vapour loss for insects and other small invertebrates. Participants can work with single animal and high through-put systems in both open-flow and stop-flow.
Accommodation in Gainesville is not covered by registration fees. The course is limited to 12 attendants.
