Metabolic cost, oxygen consumption ( M Q J , respiratory structure and body size interact to determine the capacity of salamanders for terrestrial locomotion. Salamanders respiring via both lungs and skin, Ambystoma laterale and A. tigrinum, or with skin alone, Desmognathus ochrophaeus and D. quadramaculatus, attained a steady-state M,^ during exercise in a treadmill respirometer. Endurance was correlated with the speed at which maximal MQ, was attained (vMo2maj). Low aerobic costs of transport… CONTINUE READING
