[Effects of calcification on respiratory quotient of cultured oyster Crassostrea gigas and its fouling animals].

Abstract

Respiratory quotient (RQ) is one of the basic indices in physiology and energy metabolism of animals. When RQ is calculated, the amount of released CO2 is typically used directly. But for calcifying marine organisms, calcification which can affect dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) content in the water may cause methodological error to some extent, if it is… (More)
