Abstract 1. 1. Kinosternon hirtipes, a primarily aquatic turtle, consistently demonstrates greater rates of evaporative water loss (EWL) compared to the more terrestrial congener K. flaivscens . 2. 2. Quantitative serum chemistry analysis indicates that 12-day experimental dehydration does not produce extreme physiological stress in either species. 3. 3. Measurements of oxygen consumption and carton dioxide release suggest that interspecific variations in EWL are not attributable to respiratory… Expand
