Eckert Animal Physiology: Mechanisms and Adaptations
TLDR
Clear, balanced and beautifully illustrated, Eckert Animal Physiology sets the standard of excellence in the field. Expand
"Air Gulping" Improves Blood Oxygen Transport during Aquatic Hypoxia in the Goldfish Carassius auratus
TLDR
Surface breathing, which includes both "air gulping" and irrigation of the gills with the surface water layer, is thus demonstrated to have a significant respiratory function in the goldfish. Expand

TLDR
In many lower vertebrates, the skin is the major or even sole avenue for respiration and the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between skin and environment is commonplace in the vertebrates. Expand
Cardiovascular dynamics of the chelonia during apnoea and lung ventilation.
TLDR
It is concluded that the systemic and pulmonary circulations are perfused by a single pump during both apnoea and lung ventilation, and the composition of the blood in each of the major arteries should reflect their relationship to these patterns. Expand
Chronic hypoxia alters the physiological and morphological trajectories of developing chicken embryos.
TLDR
Chronic hypoxic exposure during critical periods in development altered the developmental physiological trajectories and modified the phenotypes of the developing embryos. Expand
Hypoxic incubation creates differential morphological effects during specific developmental critical windows in the embryo of the chicken (Gallus gallus)
TLDR
The chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) mass was unchanged by hypoxic exposure in early or mid-development, but CAM mass on Day 18 increased strikingly, presumably enhances oxygen delivery, thus minimizing the detrimental effects of hypoxia on development and growth. Expand
O2 consumption and heart rate in developing zebrafish (Danio rerio): influence of temperature and ambient O2.
TLDR
The ability to regulate MO2 and fH in response to the compounding demands of increased temperature and/or decreased oxygen availability first develops after approximately 20 days in D. rerio and, thereafter, the ability to maintain MO2 in the face of ambient hypoxia progressively builds through to adulthood. Expand
Disruption of hemoglobin oxygen transport does not impact oxygen-dependent physiological processes in developing embryos of zebra fish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
That aerobic processes continue without hemoglobin O2 transport indicates the adequacy in the embryo of simple O2 diffusion alone even in developmental stages with extensive convective blood circulation generated by the heart. Expand
