The acid-base balance of the prebranchial hemolymph of the crayfish Astacus leptodactylus was studied at various acid-base balances and levels of oxygenation of the ambient water at 13 degrees C. The water acid-base balance was controlled automatically by a pH-CO2-stat. Into water of constant titration alkalinity, TA, this device intermittenly injects carbon dioxide to maintain the pH at a preset value. Water pH was reduced to the same value either by hypercapnia (at constant TA) or by adding… CONTINUE READING
