Allometry of red cell oxygen binding and hematology in larvae of the salamander, Ambystoma tigrinum.

Abstract

Very few studies have attempted to relate blood characteristics to body mass within, rather than between, species. Thus, respiratory and hematological properties of the blood of larval tiger salamanders (Ambystoma tigrinum) have been measured in animals ranging in body mass from approximately 2 to 112 g. This amphibian species was chosen because larvae of… (More)
