Table 1 Linear regression statistics for log organ mass versus log body mass (controlled for tarsus length) allometric equations (allometric correlations) and for log organ mass residuals versus log basal metabolic rate (BMR) residuals (residual correlations) in Silky Starlings (Sturnus sericeus) that had been acclimatized to different seasons from Wenzhou City, China

From: Seasonal phenotypic flexibility in body mass, basal thermogenesis, and tissue oxidative capacity in the male Silky Starling (Sturnus sericeus)
