INTRODUCTION
Starting in 2002, with a paper entitled ``Global
biodiversity, biochemical kinetics and the energetic-
equivalence rule,'' we have been developing a theoretical
framework to understand the mechanisms underlying
broadscale biodiversity gradients, particularly the latitu-
dinal gradient. This work is part of a broader Metabolic
Theory of Ecology (MTE) being developed to predict
