Scaling of Body Weight in Bats and Rodents

Abstract

The scaling of body weight on length of head and body apparently differs between bats (Chiroptera) and nonvolant mammals. For the countries of Nigeria and Thailand, leastsquares linear regressions of log-transformed body weight of bats had significantly shallower (P < 0.01) slopes than did regressions for nonvolant mammals.
