The respiratory and circulatory physiology of exercising Christmas Island red crabs Gecarcoidea natalis were investigated with respect to their annual breeding migration. Red crabs were allowed to walk for up to 45 min. During this exercise period, the functioning of the circulatory system in gas transport and the energy status of the red crabs were quantified. Energy production during exercise required both aerobic and anaerobic contributions. The aerobic scope of G. natalis was low, with only… CONTINUE READING
