Comparing the Influence of Caffeine on the Metabolism of Goldfish (Carassius Auratus Auratus)

Written by Aida Introduction Metabolism has been a topic of interest for all living organisms. Many factors can affect the rate of a living being’s metabolism. Both ectotherms and endotherms differ in the way they control their temperature and so how they manipulate their metabolism. It is particularily interesting how poikilothermic organisms are affected by their surrounding environment. Indeed, Dr. Richard P. Brown investigated that body size has minimal direct influence on body-air temperature difference in ectoderms. Additionally, he discusses […]
