Basal metabolic rate (BMR) of the European pine vole Pitymys subterraneus (de Selys-Longchamps, 1836) with typical black agouti coat colour (A) is 2.78 cc O2 g-1 hr-1, and in voles with diluted fur pigment (D) it is 3.06 cc O2 g-1 hr-1. The difference of BMR between the voles of A and D morphs is not significant. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) was determined at ambient temperatures (Ta) -10°C, 0°C, 6°C, 12°C, 24°C and 30°C.
