Pulmonary oxygen diffusing capacity of the South American lungfish Lepidosiren paradoxa: physiological values by the Bohr method.

Abstract

Lungfish (Dipnoi) may represent the sister group to all land vertebrates and are therefore important for reconstructing the conquest of land by tetrapods. We determined venous and arterial blood gases, pulmonary O(2) uptake, and the form of the hemoglobin-O(2) dissociation curves in the South American lungfish Lepidosiren paradoxa. Measurements were… (More)
