In recent years, there have been several excellent review articles on aspects of decapod crustacean physiology including ventilation and circulation (Taylor 1982; Cameron and Mangum 1983; McMahon and Wilkens 1983; McMahon and Burggren 1988), acid-base balance (Truchot 1983; Cameron 1986), gas transport (McMahon 1981; Mangum 1983), and osmoregulation (Mantel and Farmer 1983). These have focused predominantly on the marine decapods that constitute the majority (90%) of crustacean species. While… CONTINUE READING
