Physiol. 212(5): 957-961. rg67.----The minute volume, tidal volume, and respiratory frequency were measured in three echidnas breathing air and various air-CO* mixtures. Increased concentration of CO2 in the inspired air caused large increases in minute and tidal volume but little change in respiratory rate. However, normal variation in minute volume of echidnas… CONTINUE READING
