The oxygen consumption rate of Scapharca inaequivalvis measured under normoxic conditions over 48 h showed a significant daily cycle with lowest values occurring shortly after the dark period; all hypoxia exposure experiments were carried out during the declining part of the cycle. Animals were exposed to a constant level of hypoxia for a 12-h period in a… CONTINUE READING
