Critical Increment for Opercular Breathing Rhythm of the Goldfish

Abstract

The temperature characteristic for opercular breathing rhythm in the quiescent goldfish is 16,500 calories. The reactions governing the frequency of breathing movements in vertebrates appear to be constituent links in the oxidative metabolism of the controlling cells.
