Energy transmitted by the blood Heat loss through the skin

Energy blood flow through the lungs

Blood flow to pulse rate as well as size of the heart

porportional =

body weight(g) Pulse Rate(beats/min) Bird

20 1000 Canary

300 185 Pegion

341 378 Crow

658 300 buzzard

1100 190 duck

2000 312 hen

2300 240 goose

8750 193 turkey

Yes, its states that the smaller the heart is the faster the pulse is. Thats refering to small animals. While much larger animals have bigger heart with a much lower pulse rate

It'll be a proportional by power law. Blood flow is a network, which is larger at an exponential rate in a marginally larger mammal. The larger the animal the slower the heart rate from mouse to blue whale. If you want to go for extra points check out the work on mathematics and biology being done at the Santa Fe Institute. They have a website. Hope this helps.
