1. At 17°C. the oxygen consumption of Chironomus larvae shows little diminution when the oxygen concentration in the water decreases from 7.5 c.c. per litre (air saturation) to about 3 c.c. per litre. Below 3 c.c. per litre a further decrease in oxygen concentration causes a falling off in oxygen consumption. 2. At 17°C. the oxygen consumption of Chironomus larvae whose haemoglobin has been converted to carboxyhaemoglobin is as great as that of normal animals from air saturation down to 3 c.c… Expand
