R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / MetabolicRate


On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the MetabolicRate data set which pertains to Metabolic Rate of Caterpillars. The MetabolicRate data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. You can load the MetabolicRate data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("MetabolicRate"). This will load the data into a variable called MetabolicRate. If R says the MetabolicRate data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Stat2Data") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the MetabolicRate R data set. The size of this file is about 16,572 bytes.

Metabolic Rate of Caterpillars


Body size and metabolic rate of Manduca Sexta caterpillars


A dataset with 305 observations on the following 7 variables.

R project statistics dataset table
Computer ID number of the computer used to measure metabolic rate
BodySize Size of the caterpillar (in grams)
LogBodySize Log (base 10) of BodySize
Instar Number from 1 (smallest) to 5 (largest) indicating stage of the caterpillar's life
CO2ppm Carbon dioxide concentration (in ppm)
Mrate Metabolic rate
LogMrate Log (base 10) of metablic rate


Marisa Stearns collected and analyzed body size and metabolic rates for Manduca Sexta caterpillars.


We thank Professor Itagaki and his research students for sharing these data.
