The logarithmic expansion rate of a positively
invariant set for a $C^1$ endomorphism is shown to equal
the infimum of the Lyapunov exponents for ergodic measures
with support in the invariant set. Using this result, aperiodic
flows of the two torus are shown to have an expansion rate of zero and the effects of
conjugacies on expansion rates are investigated.
