values of the damping of the dissipated energy. The various second moments of area, the moments of resistance, as well as the values of the dynamic shear modulus, represent adaptations to the function of the metacarpus. The values of the damping factors in the bony material are inversely related to the

have less energy for survival and thus a shorter lifespan. This trade-off has been shown to exist in many species, although not in all cases (REZNICK, 1985). 228 In parasitoids there are various ways to measure the life history parame- ters involved in this trade-off. Reproduction can be measured

. Emphasis is laid on the relation between the energy spectrum around twilight- the period rabbits are most active-and the spectral sensitivities of the three photo- receptor systems, which seem well adapted to the ambient light circumstances.

shift from heterotrophy ( 1 st-3rd order; P/R< l, where P is primary production and R is community respiration, both expressed as energy equivalents) to autotrophy (4th-5th order; P/R> 1) is a result of a progressive processing of organic matter (OM) and improved light access. Thus, the importance of

To compensate most fish species activate anaerobic glycolysis resulting in accumulation of lactic acid (J0RGENSEN & MUSTAFA, 1980; DUNN & HOCHACHKA, 1986, 1987; DALLA VIA et al., 1994) and consequently in metabolic acidosis (B
